One of the ‘Best Wineries of the Regions’
5 red star winery
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014
A distinguished estate with a proud, even if relatively short, history. Long renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon, its repertoire has steadily grown, with the emphasis on single varietal wines. The style overall is fruit rather than oak-driven.

Trophy winning 2012 Leconfield Merlot was Ray Jordan’s Wine Of The Week last week in The West Australian! Here’s what Ray had to say: “Beautiful example of this vintage in Coonawarra. Seductive perfume of red fruits with a little mint and red currant playing over the deep dark plum and blackcurrant characters. So seamless and balanced on the palate, with super-fine tannins and silky oak in support. This is such a good current drink, yet there is the substance to handle further cellaring. Only just coming into WA so ask your local to get it in. A most underrated and impressive producer. 93/100″

94 points (2012 vintage)
Leconfield has one of the most consistent merlots around, and this does not disappoint. Cassis, mulberry and a touch of black olive come together on the elegant, medium-bodied palate, fine tannins and integrated French oak neatly judged. The persistence of the finish and aftertaste gained it the crucial extra point.”

Leconfield Coonawarra was established by noted oenologist, Sydney Hamilton, in the southern half of the Coonawarra strip. The vineyard occupies some of the area’s richest terra rossa soil over limestone, a composition for which Coonawarra is famous. During his winemaking career spanning nearly 60 years, Sydney was highly regarded for his contribution to the industry. In 1981, with 65 vintages under his belt, Sydney decided to finally retire and Leconfield was acquired by his nephew, Dr Richard Hamilton, then based in McLaren Vale.
