Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernets 2021

Special Price $28.00 Regular Price $32.00
No made in every vintage and even then in tiny quantities. This blend sees early ripening Cab blended with Merlot and Cab Franc left to hand a little longer on the vine than normal. This enables the 3 varieties to be picked at the same time and co-fermented, resulting in the perfectly harmonious integration of flavours. Deep in colour; the nose is fresh, and bright, offering dark fruit aromas, cedar, cigar box and dark chocolate. It balances richness with elegance beautifully and finishes with perfectly modulated fine tannins.

A rich fruit palate with fine long tannins fills the glass and mouth, which reflects the early warmer vintage but still retains the elegance expected from a Coonawarra yield in good winemaking hands. The palate finishes with a clean acidity, hinting at the oak maturation. Will cellar well for 10-15 years.

Planted in the renowned terra rossa soil of the Coonawarra, Leconfield's Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard dates back to 1974, and benefits from a climate very similar to the Bordeaux region in France. Concentrated fruit flavours supported by earthiness are in the grapes, and grace this award-winner.

If there is one combination to look for when browsing for a good medium-bodied red, Coonawarra, terra rosa and Cabernet Sauvignon is always a winner. Far down the line from Adelaide (about 390km southeast, a grape's throw from the border of Victoria), the name is Aboriginal for "honeysuckle", yet reds from the region are more known for flavours of plum and blackcurrant. The Coonawarra vineyard region is sparse, running along a thin 2km-wide ridge elevating it above surrounding swamp. World-renowned, this 15km stretch of red soil is so unique, it's worth looking it up on google maps and switching to satellite view to see how it is farmed. See that stri ... Read Full Article

That's it, and notice the big spread of nothing around it? The Coonawarra is a very special place. Laying on an old ridge of limestone, the fields have superb drainage, allowing the vines to flourish without the dampness at night that can ruin a good crop. Very similar in climate to the Bordeaux region in
