Leconfield, Blanc de Blancs, Chardonnay, NV, Coonawarra, South Australia

Producer Profile

Leconfield Coonawarra was established in 1974 by noted oenologist, Sydney Hamilton. During a winemaking career spanning nearly 60 years, Sydney was highly regarded for his contribution to the industry. At the age of 76, Sydney Hamilton still yearned to make a classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon and set himself the task of finding the right district in which to establish his own vineyard and winery – and Leconfield Coonawarra was established.

Today Leconfield’s winemaking direction is driven by highly regarded winemaker, Paul Gordon. Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon has established itself as one of the most distinctive on the Australian market and has a dedicated following throughout Australia and around the world. The Merlot is meticulously selected so that the small volume released each year is extremely sought after and is regarded as one of the best examples in the district.

Over the last two decades and further reinforced through recent show success, the Riesling vines selected and planted by Sydney Hamilton in 1974 have yielded wines that have become benchmarks of the variety within the Coonawarra region.

Viticulture

Leconfield Coonawarra Sparkling Blanc de Blancs celebrates the elegance and purity of Chardonnay grown in the premium cool climate of South Australia’s Coonawarra region.

Winemaking

Cold harvesting from our estate vineyards ensured freshness, while a secondary malo-lactic fermentation has delivered a textured, creamy mouthfeel. The wine was matured on lees (sur lie) and the inclusion of a reserve wine, aged in oak, contributes to the overall depth and complexity.

Tasting Note

Leconfield Coonawarra Sparkling Blanc de Blancs exhibits fresh apple, citrus blossom and stone fruits with lemon curd and savoury brioche notes, while a fine bead cleanses and extends the palate.

Goes well with

This Blanc de Blancs is excellent partnered with assorted canapes, smoked salmon bellinis or simply on its own as an aperitif.

Cellaring

Perfect on release with its fruity primary flavours and will gain an extra dimension of complexity through medium term aging over 4-5 years.
