Colour

Deep crimson red with purple hues.

Aroma

Lifted perfume of rich blackcurrant fruit and stylish oak, black olives and lovely Coonawarra regional characteristics.

Food Matching

Char-grilled pink lamb cutlets or wild mushroom risotto.

Cellaring Potential

Medium to long-term cellaring will see graceful development of this wine.

Winery Profile

Leconfield, along with McLaren Vale winery Richard Hamilton Wines, are both owned by Dr Richard Hamilton and his wife Jette. The Hamilton family has roots in the Australian Wine Industry stretching back to the early 19th century, with the establishment of the Hamilton vineyards, just south of Adelaide, in 1837. Leconfield was originally planted in Coonawarra in 1974 by vigneron Sydney Hamilton, who retired in 1981 after 65 vintages in the industry, selling to his nephew Richard to keep Leconfield within the Hamilton family.The wines are made by Paul Gordon, who came onboard in 2001, and has helped Leconfield to great success. Leconfield is currently rated 5 stars by James Halliday, and has received multiple trophies, awards and medals in the last decade, across their portfolio.
