Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Full Cabernet flavour bursts onto this richly flavoured palate. The retains elegance while structured, silky tannins provide the depth and persistence expected of a wine with this pedigree.
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.
Deep luxuriant red, deep brooding rich cassis nose, overlaid with cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar through the influence of French oak. A beautiful example of ripe varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.
Rare meats, charcuterie, rich pasta, lamb shanks.
100% matured in French oak for 18 months. (43% new, 57% 1-3 year old)
