Leconfield McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019

Special Price $22.00 Regular Price $28.00
This is a full bodied beast offering rich fruit, peppers, plums, fine grained French oak and fine tannins. It offers both richness and structure, deep fruit and elegance. It’s definitely at home in the company of a good piece of red meat served rare as you dare but will also work well with a plate of antipasto,

From the winery:

The inherent fruit vibrancy of the wine comes from our 'Farm Block'. A portion of the wine was barrel fermented to integrate the fruit and oak, and an intense component of Coonawarra Shiraz was added on final blending. Prior to bottling, the wine received a traditional fining with egg white to aid clarification and soften the tannins. The fruit, sourced fruit from our estate vineyards, has been selected to give the depth for which this wine is renowned.

The sun is shining yet not too harshly to deter me from wanting to drink a few glasses of red. 2013 was an early vintage and low in yield yet the quality of the fruit that was picked for Leconfield is exceptional. It is rare for such a fresh wine to be ready to drink so soon but it certainly is. Decanted and drunk. I normally organise some nice food when I drink but I simply didn't need to. The Leconfield Shiraz 2013 is densely red in colour with raspberry and spices coming through the subtle hints of vanilla. The French oak has balanced the smooth tannins and I know the wine will age well over the next few years. It is such a delicious, tidy number now so you will need to be disciplined. Tape up the box, write your name and ‘moscato’ in large letters and store it at your friends place. Silky, vibrant and elegant.
