Leconfield Merlot Rosé 2018
The Leconfield Coonawarra estate was established in 1974 by one of Australia’s most talented winemakers, Sydney Hamilton. During three decades to follow the vineyard has become famous for the distinctive wines it produces. This rosé is the first produced by Leconfield.
Leconfield wanted to capture the elegance of Merlot in this wine through cool night harvesting. No pressing was used in the extracting of juice, producing a lightly coloured and elegant wine. 75% of the juice was treated as an aromatic white – cold settled, racked with low solids and cold fermented using an aromatic yeast. The other 25% was fermented with whole solids and natural yeast at a warmer temperature, then allowed to undergo malo-lactic fermentation to promote mouthfeel and length.
