Leconfield Coonawarra Chardonnay 2019

Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $28.00
Lots of peach and almond meal here. Quality French oak too and plenty of the cheesy creamy quality which comes from lees stirring while the wine is in barrel. Good acid too. Has the zip and cut to match most foods now. As it ages it should become more textured and buttery.

The Leconfield Chardonnay vines are all 30+ years old. Fine grained French Dargaud and Jaegle oak is used here, very fine grained and elegant, complimening the aroma of this fruit dominant style. Fine, tight and elegant palate with mid palate roundness finishing with a clean zesty acidity. After cold settling, the wine was inoculated with yeast and a portion was immediately run into oak for barrel fermentation with initial frequent battonage during fermentation and less frequent lees stirring as the wine matured. A second portion was fermented using its indigenous yeast. The wine was allowed to undergo partial malo-lactic fermentation while on yeast lees.

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

Chardonnay sits on the fence of many a wine enthusiast. Versatile, kind in nature and oh so compliant, however for most it's still dressed in attire that's so distinctly... 90s. Shoulder pads, overalls and bike shorts saw this particular version of white wine with such a wooded vengeance, we were practically asking the chefs to take the butter out of the meals to make way for it. Thankfully however, times are a changin'. Underneath all that 90s getup reveals elegance and sophistication and Australia is doing its bit to make Chardy interesting again. Read Full Article

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 strip of green north of Penola? 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
