2019 Leconfield Coonawarra Merlot

The Leconfield Coonawarra Merlot is recognised as a benchmark for both the variety and the region. This is a flavoursome Merlot with full flavours of ripe plums and round, long tannins that provide persistence and length. It retains elegance and finesse.

The Coonawarra vineyards of Leconfield are planted on Terra Rossa soils rich in the clay content that is ideal for growing premium Merlot. This is an estate grown wine sourced from vines planted from 1982 to 1999. Leconfield has developed a reputation of being among the best producers of Merlot in Australia. We are continually evolving our style to give length with finesse in this limited release wine.

The vineyard was founded in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who at 76 years of age had the dream to produce the classic Australian red wine. Time has validated his choice of Coonawarra as a fantastic place to do just that. Today the estate is planted predominantly to Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller patches of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Shiraz and complemented with the white varieties of Riesling and Chardonnay.
