This wine has an excellent heritage of vines planted in 1972 and 1985. Each year these vineyards produce fruit of excellent flavour and depth with both varieties contributing citrus characters with an extra dimension of limes, snow peas and gooseberries.

Light-medium straw with attractive green tints. This is a fragrant wine displaying ripe gooseberry and fresh squeezed lime juice characters. Zesty, flavoursome palate showing tropical flavours surrounding a long middle palate that finishes with a clean, refreshing, soft acidity.

This wine makes an excellent aperitif and complements antipasti, fish and poultry.

Best enjoyed in its youth over the next 3 years.

Producer Information

Hamilton is one of the original Australian winemaking families. In 1837 Richard Hamilton founded the Hamilton Vineyards, just south of Adelaide in 1837. It was planted with stock brought by the family from South Africa, en route from England.

Five winemaking generations later, in 1972, Richard's great-great-grandson Dr Richard Hamilton established a small winery in McLaren Vale under the guidance of his father Burton, a noted viticulturist, and uncle, renowned vigneron, Sydney Hamilton.

Two years later, at the age of 76, Sydney bought land on the famous terra rossa strip in Coonawarra and established Leconfield to fulfil his life's ambition of growing and making a classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sydney retired in 1981 after 65 vintages and Dr Richard Hamilton purchased the company from him. Leconfield became the single winemaking facility for both the Richard Hamilton and Leconfield brands, securing the family connection to both Coonawarra and McLaren Vale.

Experienced Coonawarra winemaker Paul Gordon joined Leconfield in 2001. He and Assistant Winemaker Tim Bailey are the winemaking custodians of the Richard Hamilton and Leconfield labels.
