Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Tasting Notes
The 2017 release of Leconfield's Coonawarra Cabernet is a dense brooding red, the bouquet is fragrant, ripe cassis and blackberry enhance with cedar and cinnamon through French oak maturation. This is a wonderful varietal example of a Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is medium to full bodied with great persistence of flavour, and retains the elegance expected of high quality Coonawarra reds. Tannins are textured, silky and long and the finish is clean and bright.

The style and elegance of this Cabernet will complement the finest beef and venison, through to rich vegetable ragout and pasta.

Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon has been the flagship of Leconfield since the first release in 1977. Our philosophy is to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon displaying both depth and elegance where oak complexes and enhances the fruit but is not allowed to dominate. Leconfield is situated in the heart of Australia’s famous Coonawarra with its rich Terra Rosa soil over limestone providing the ideal environment for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard was founded in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who at 76 years of age had the ambition to produce the classic Australian red wine. Time has validated his choice of Coonawarra as a fantastic place to do just that. Today the estate remains a family wine business owned by Dr Richard and Jette Hamilton and is planted predominantly to Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller patches of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Petit Verdot and complemented with the white varieties of Riesling and Chardonnay. The Hamilton family have been growing grapes and wine in South Australia since 1837.

Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon has been the flagship of Leconfield since the first release in 1977. Our philosophy is to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon displaying both depth and elegance where oak complexes and enhances the fruit but is not allowed to dominate. Several components that comprise this wine completed fermentation in French oak while the balance had extra time on skins before pressing and oak maturation.

2017 provided a season balancing patience and prudence to capture the best potential of the fruit. Patience allowed for fruit to achieve flavour ripeness, prudence not to lose all that hard work through being too greedy. Typically, our oldest, most trusted blocks ripened a little early and were directed to complete fermentation in new French Oak barrels after 6 days skin maceration. Other blocks were allowed more time to macerate before being placed into oak after malo-lactic fermentation. Several rackings of the wine occurred and some batches maturing in new oak were swapped in to older oak and vice versa. Coopers from both Bordeaux and Burgundy have lent their hand to mature this wine. Our emphasis is to have long tannins yet sufficient opulent fruit to fill the palate. Minimal fining was required before bottling in December 2018.

100% matured in French oak for 18 months. (43% new, 57% 1-3 year old). Winery Notes
