Leconfield Coonawarra Wines

The Leconfield Coonawarra Story

In 1974, at 76 years of age, with a winemaking career spanning nearly 60 years, Sydney Hamilton (1898-1987) selected a fine piece of ‘Terra Rossa’ country at Coonawarra to fulfill a life’s ambition, to grow and produce a classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. He named the estate Leconfield, after his English ancestor, Lord Leconfield, and set about establishing a remarkable reputation for Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.

Great Wines Crafted From Great Vineyards

Leconfield Coonawarra embraces the essence of the famous South Australian wine region by creating rich, elegant and sensual wines. Leconfield is famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon which is the flagship of the brand. Over the last two decades, and further reinforced through recent show success, the Riesling vines selected and planted by Sydney Hamilton in 1974 have yielded wines that have become benchmarks of the variety within the Coonawarra region. With a passion for Merlot, Paul Gordon's expert winemaking has seen the Leconfield Coonawarra Merlot become one of the best wines of the variety produced in Australia.
