Leconfield

“In 1981 Richard and Jette purchased the Leconfield winery and vineyards in Coonawarra that had been established by Richard’s uncle, Sydney Hamilton in 1974. The purchase of Leconfield complemented their McLaren Vale operations and enabled the business access to high quality fruit from two of the premium wine growing regions of Australia, since then additional vineyards have been planted and the winemaking facilities expanded and improved.
Paul Gordon joined Leconfield Hamilton as Senior Winemaker from the 2002 vintage with more than twenty years of experience and a reputation as one of the countries most highly regarded winemakers. Paul’s winemaking career started in 1979 after graduating with a degree in Oenology from Roseworthy College, over a period of 24 years wines under Paul’s direction have been awarded a total of 29 trophies and 149 gold medals, including the Jimmy Watson Trophy.”

South Australia

Coonawarra is considered the most renowned wine region in Australia. It has the ‘terra rossa’ soils and some great winemakers, and subsequently responsible for some of the best wines produced in Australia. Most notably red wines and Cabernet Sauvignon in particular. The first vineyard was planted in the 1880s at Yallum, (John Riddoch’s). The region did not establish its reputation as a winemaking area until the 1950s when Wynns and Penfolds purchased acreage on the back of a resurgence in the table wine market. Investment by large and small companies led to expansion, securing Coonawarrra’s status as a great wine. The climate is regarded as Mediterranean. The main wine styles: Red – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet-Merlot blend, Shiraz; White – Chardonnay.
