Selector Magazine awards both Cabernet Sauvignons Top 20 Status

2014 Richard Hamilton Hut Block & 2014 Leconfield Coonawarra

Selector Magazine Winter 2016
 2014 Richard Hamilton Hut Block Cabernet Sauvignon
 This McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is named after the picker’s hut at the front of the property. Opening with dark fruit and mulberry aromas, it has a very concentrated nose with spicy oak lift. Rich dark berries on the palate are made complex by dried leaf and tobacco notes with soft, well-integrated tannins enhancing the dark fruit finish. A well-balanced and great value Cabernet.

2014 Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
 Leconfield’s classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon has been the flagship of the winery since they released the first vintage in 1977. On the nose, it shows toasty oak lift over black fruit and dried herb aromas. While its fleshy dense, the palate displays finesse and intensity with sweet plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours, well-integrated oak and touches of varietal leaf and mint on the long velvety finish.

Introducing the 2015 Richard Hamilton ‘Signature’ Adelaide Hills Chardonnay

We are proud to announce the release of the first vintage of our Richard Hamilton ‘Signature’ Adelaide Hills Chardonnay as the latest addition to our Single Vineyard series.
 Sourced from the Springhead Road vineyards at Mount Torrens, 450m above sea level, this cool site has produced this fine, elegant Chardonnay. Natural fermentation and maturation in a large new oak vat and several French oak hogsheads has imparted nuttiness to the fruit. Natural malo-lactic secondary fermentation has softened the acidity and provided wonderful texture and length.
 The Adelaide Hills are recognised as an ideal environment in which to grow premium fruit.The coolness of the region produces wines of elegance.
$30 per bottle or $26 for Centurion Club Members

David Sly’s 10 Top Regional Picks – Coonawarra

Halliday Wine Companion June/July 2016

2014 Leconfield Coonawarra Merlot
Often the forgotten partner of Coonawarra’s red grape output, merlot is taken seriously by Leconfield winemaker Paul Gordon. Obtaining great dark concentration without overt ripeness, an elegant palate of cassis and redcurrant with a pleasant herbaceous edge is kept long and lean with fine, silky tannins.
