• Leconfield 'The Sydney' Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 - Limited

    This wine has a long, stylish palate with silky tannins that provides persistence.

    About: 

    The key to this wine was the vineyard selection made at harvest. We were meticulous in choosing the most consistently ripe grapes from our 30 year old vineyard and fermenting in our favourite small fermenter. During fermentation, air was used several times daily to gently extract the flavours from the skins. Pressing was performed before complete sugar dryness to allow the fermentation to finish in new Dargaud and Jaeglé French Oak hogsheads. The wine was emptied from oak several times during its maturation and received a light fining before bottling. 

    The Leconfield Coonawarra estate was established in 1974 by noted oenologist, Sydney Hamilton who at the age of 76 and a winemaking career spanning nearly 60 years, still yearned to make a classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. Selecting Coonawarra as the region to fulfil his ambitious dream, Sydney began to plant his vineyard and built his winery naming it Leconfield, after an English ancestor, Lord Leconfield. This wine pays homage to Sydney’s dream.
