Leconfield Shiraz 2018 (Mclaren Vale)

Tasting Notes
The 2018 vintage of Leconfield Wines McLaren Vale Shiraz is a rich, full & deep scarlet red hue. With bright & vibrant aromas of red plum and olive nuances, overlaid with subtle oak that provides an element of coffee mocha. The palate is lovely and rich, full, concentrated ripe shiraz with fine tannins that provide persistence and length. Round acidity provides elegance and grace. This wine will match perfectly with full flavoured plates of rare beef, aubergine lasagne, & tapas. Whilst this wine is enjoyable in its youth, it is structured to mature and develop for a decade.

Leconfield was established in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who, at 76 years of age, had the dream to produce the classic Australian red wine. Leconfield McLaren Vale Shiraz provides a sibling to the classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, for which the estate is famous, the Coonawarra Merlot and its recent new addition, Cabernet/Merlot.

Our 'Farm' block just to the south of the McLaren Vale township provides the black loam soil over clay that limits yields and encourages small berries to produce the rich Shiraz fruit for this wine. Harvesting was at night to take advantage of cooler temperatures. Bunches were destemmed then allowed to ferment for 7-10 days on skins before pressing. The oak used for maturation was predominantly new and used French with some second use American to aid the perception of fruit sweetness and a light fining polished the soft tannin structure.

2018 was an outstanding year in McLaren Vale. Above average rainfall in July and August set up the vines for a good growing season. October and November were relatively dry but relieved by good rains in December. Temperatures in most months from October to the end of harvest were slightly warmer than average with both maximum and minimum. Veraison was a little late, but proceeded rapidly after some hot January days. Ripening conditions during February and March were ideal with dry conditions and an absence of extreme temperatures provided rich fruit flavours and mature tannins.

The Leconfield Mclaren Vale Shiraz 20187 vintage was 100% French oak - Initially 50% New and 50% large Vats for 8 months, then 6 months in 1-5 YO hogsheads to finish off. This wine is also vegan friendly. Winery Notes
