Leconfield estate was established in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton. Leconfield has embraced innovation to produce high quality wines which are sought after all around the world.
Leconfield’s sparkling wine range has a strong following in its own right. The original name of the Sparkling Wine Range was ‘Synergy’ in honour of the synergy between the Leconfield Coonawarra and McLaren Vale vineyards. Today all the fruit is sourced solely from the Coonawarra vineyards to capture the qualities of the cool climate region that is essential for the creation of elegant sparkling wines. To reflect this change, the name was shortened and ‘Syn’ was created
The Syn Sparkling Wines portfolio consists of Syn Chardonnay Pinot Noir, Syn Rouge Sparkling Shiraz and the elegant Syn Sparkling Rosé. Syn Sparkling Wines are award winning wines of excellent value.
Coonawarra has been chosen for its cool climate to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with tight acidity and elegance of fruit. The fruit for this cuvee was sourced from vines with an average age of 25 years.
Grapes are harvested early in the season while sugar levels are low and acidity bright and lightly pressed. The juice completes it first fermentation with grape solids to enhance the texture of the palate. Some components are allowed to complete malo-lactic fermentation and the entire blend is kept on yeast lees to add to the complexity of the wine. When ready, the wine is re-fermented to produce natural effervescence and final liqueuring to round out the palate.
Attractive, bright peachy nose complexed with an enticing yeasty influence to give a trace of macadamia nut. Zesty palate with a clean bright acidity. Brut in style, the wine leaves the palate tingling and refreshed. The wine has an excellent persistent mousse and velvety creaminess.
Beautiful chilled as an aperitif or serve with hors d’ourves, oysters, fresh seafood and asparagus.
Best served in its youth.
