2021 Leconfield Cabernet Franc Coonawarra – The Leconfield vineyard was founded in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who at 76 years of age had the dream to produce classic Australian red wine. Time has validated his choice of Coonawarra as a fantastic place to do just that. Today the estate is planted predominantly to Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller patches of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Shiraz and complemented with the white varieties of Riesling and Chardonnay.
Single batch, single vineyard. The 2021 Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Franc shows an earthy complexity with a touch of dried sage. Oak plays a subtle understatement to the fragrance of the fruit. With a round, long, textured palate that is persistent, elegant, silky and creamy.
Very approachable as a young wine. Cedary complexity will develop with 6-8 years of age.
