Single batch, single vineyard. The 2021 Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Franc shows an earthy complexity with a touch of dried sage. Oak plays a subtle understatement to the fragrance of the fruit. With a round, long, textured palate that is persistent, elegant, silky and creamy.

This Cabernet Franc shows an earthy complexity with a touch of dried sage. Oak plays a subtle understatement to the fragrance of the fruit.
Round, long, textured, persistent, elegant, silky, creamy.
Very approachable as a young wine. Cedary complexity will develop with 6-8 years of age.
Single batch, single vineyard. The fruit was harvested on 5th April and fermented as a single batch with extended maceration on skins. Following pressing and malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was racked to used hogsheads for maturation to allow the fruit to shine through without excessive oak influence. The wine was racked several times to soften the tannins before ultimately being prepared for bottling in July 2020 We believe this to be a very good example of the variety, with softer tannins and good persistence. It has elegance and strength. Jancis Robinson has described it as 'subtly fragrant and gently flirtatious', a more 'feminine side of Cabernet Sauvignon'.
Leconfield is situated in the heart of Australia’s famous Coonawarra with its rich Terra Rosa soil over limestone providing the ideal environment for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard was founded in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton who at 76 years of age had the ambition to produce the classic Australian red wine. Today the estate remains a family wine business owned by Dr Richard and Jette Hamilton. The Hamilton family have been growing grapes and wine in Australia since 1837.
Vintage Conditions:
Coonawarra experienced another strong vintage in 2022. With stable conditions, high-quality fruit and moderate to good yields we ended slightly below the long-term average yield for the region.The vintage start was consistent with whites’ long-term average before moving into Shiraz, finishing with Cabernet in the second half of May. Coonawarra received close to the long-term average rainfall throughout winter. Overall it was a mild growing season, with no prolonged heat waves or hot days—perfect ripening conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. October and November were cooler than average before warming up in late November, just in time for flowering, resulting in a very even fruit set. The temperature throughout January was slightly above average before returning to the long-term average throughout February and March.
