Leconfield

South Australia | Coonawarra

Our Review

Sydney Hamilton purchased the unplanted property that was to become Leconfield in 1974, having worked in the family wine business for over 30 years until his retirement in the mid ’50s. When he acquired the property, and set about planting it, he was 76 and reluctantly bowed to family pressure to sell Leconfield to nephew Richard in ’81. Richard has progressively increased the vineyards to their present level, over 75% dedicated to cabernet sauvignon – for long the winery’s specialty. Exports to most major markets. -JAMES HALLIDAY

About

Leconfield Coonawarra embraces the essence of the famous South Australian wine region by creating rich, elegant and sensual wines. Leconfield is famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon which is the flagship of the brand. Over the last two decades, and further reinforced through recent show success, the Riesling vines selected and planted by Sydney Hamilton in 1974 have yielded wines that have become benchmarks of the variety within the Coonawarra region. With a passion for Merlot, Paul Gordon's expert winemaking has seen the Leconfield Coonawarra Merlot become one of the best wines of the variety produced in Australia.
