About the wine
First released in 1976, Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon has developed an enviable reputation for its expression of Coonawarra terrior. The fruit is from mature vineyards grown in the rich terra rossa soil over limestone for which the region is celebrated. Full flavored with ripe cassis fruit characters. The finished wine expresses elegant, complex layers of rich fruit, fine tannins, aromatic French oak and balanced acidity.
Fragrant, ripe cassis and blackberry nose enhance with cedar and cinnamon through French oak maturation. This is a wonderful example varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium to full bodied with great persistence of flavour and retains the elegance expected of high quality Coonawarra reds. Tannins are textured, silky and long and the finish is clean and bright.
The style and elegance of this Cabernet will complement the finest beef and venison, through to rich vegetable ragout and pasta.
