Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Merlot 2015

Deep full red with attractive crimson hues.

Spicy choc-mint nose with integrated subtle oak. Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a backbone of cassis overlayed with plum fruits from Merlot. There is an intriguing element of forest-floor complexity.

A fine round palate showing fruit sweetness. Medium to full bodied in structure, it has fine, silky tannins and a great persistence of flavour.

A delicious wine to have at a long Sunday lunch with your favourite roast, oxtail casserole, and enough earthiness to go with a little grated truffle over an Italian or Spanish inspired meal.

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 Australia for 178 years.

As with all Leconfield wines, our philosophy is to produce wines displaying both depth and elegance where oak complexes and enhances the fruit but is not allowed to dominate. 2015 produced excellence in both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Merlot was picked from the 1st to 3rd of April and Cabernet Sauvignon from 13th to 23rd April, the yields were quite low and ranged from 5.0-7.5 tonnes/ha.
,br> Oak maturation was in a blend of new and used hogsheads with several workings to soften the tannins and fill-out the flavour. The wine received a light egg fining and one filtration before bottling. 100% Matured in French oak for 15 months: 18 % New, 59% 1 year old, 12% 2 year old, 11% 3 year old.

Very approachable on release or enjoy it over the next 8 or so years as it matures. Winery Notes
