Winemaking Notes:
Fresh Coonawarra Shiraz was made in a fine, elegant style and matured in oak. Secondary fermentation has provided natural effervescence and the wine has been liqueured to give a creamy palate. 2% vintage port was blended in the liqueur to the wine to provide complexity.

Background Information:
The Leconfield Coonawarra estate was established in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton. During the three decades that have followed, Leconfield has embraced innovation, annually producing high quality wines which are sought after all around the world. This uniquely Australian style of wine has a fitting place alongside our traditional SYN Cuvee Blanc as bright fresh contemporary sparkling wines.
