Leconfield 'The Sydney Reserve' Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

$80.00
Leconfield was established in 1974 with the intention of producing world class Cabernet in the Coonawarra region… and as regular additions to the trophy cabinet and awewsome Halliday scores suggest, they have succeeded admirably. This 2015 Sydney is just the fourth time they have they have produced their Flagship Cab, from their very best fruit aged in highest quality, steam bent Dargaud and Jaeglé French Oak hogsheads. The result is a supremely fine, reserved Cabernet which needs at least another 5 years to start showing its best. Currently there are blackcurrants and violets on show, fine cedary oak and very fine tannins. You could comfortably cellar for another 15-20 years.

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

Cabernet Sauvignon is unmistakably one of the world's most recognised red wine varieties.

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
