Leconfield Cabernet Merlot 2016

Leconfield is situated in the heart of Australia’s famous Coonawarra with its rich Terra Rosa soil over limestone providing the ideal environment for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon.

As with all Leconfield wines, their philosophy is to produce wines displaying both depth and elegance where oak complexes and enhances the fruit but is not allowed to dominate.  2016 produced excellence in both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  The yields were quite low and ranged from 5.0-7.5 tonnes/ha.  Oak maturation was in a blend of new and used hogsheads with several workings to soften the tannins and fill-out the flavour.

“94 points”

“I enjoy this style of medium to full-bodied merlot, with savoury sage, earth and black olive running alongside purple and black fruits, structure provided by fine tannins, party ex oak, partly ex fruit. The excellent balance will stand the wine in good stead for many years.”
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019
