Cellaring:
This is a perfect wine to be served in its first year or two while still young and fresh.
Winemaking:
Merlot was harvested at night to take advantage of cool temperatures. Free run juice with minimal skin contact produced the blush pink colour. The juice was lightly fined, settled and then fermented cool with an aromatic yeast to enhance the aroma. The wine was allowed to commence malo-lactic fermentation to enhance mouthfeel and fermented to dryness. Extended time on lees provided length on the palate before the wine was prepared for bottling in July.
Background:
The Leconfield Coonawarra estate was established in 1974 by one of Australia’s most talented winemakers, Sydney Hamilton. During the four decades to follow, the vineyard has become famous for the distinctive wines it produces. Our Rosé is a recent inclusion to our range. We have named the wine La Sevillana after the roses which feature extensively in our vineyards. Noted for its elegant fragrance, and suitability as a hedge, this floribunda rose provides orange-red flowers for an extensive period of the year.
Vintage Conditions:
The 2021 Vintage in Coonawarra has the hallmarks of an incredible vintage, with superb conditions and fruit of outstanding quality and quantity being harvested. The season was mild with very stable weather conditions. The temperatures during the growing season were mild with only minor fluctuations and no major rainfall events. Dry conditions continued right through summer, and consequently, berries remained relatively small with thick skins. Coonawarra did receive several small rainfall events during the growing which was beneficial to the general vine health and soil moisture. These climatic conditions lead to long and steady increases in maturity levels, allowing winemakers to pick at optimum levels for ripeness and flavour.
