Winemaking Notes:
The majority of this wine was grown in McLaren Vale and harvested early in the season to ensure delicacy and natural acidity. The pinot noir was allowed to undergo malo-lactic fermentation to enhance the creaminess of the palate and the components have been allowed to mature on primary yeast lees for 4 months to give the wine a luxuriant texture. Following natural secondary fermentation, the wine was liqueured ready for consumption.

Background Information:
Leconfield estate was established in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton. During the three decades that have followed, Leconfield has embraced innovation, annually producing high quality wines which are sought after all around the world. Our tradition SYN cuvee blanc has a fitting place alongside our uniquely Australian style “SYN Rouge” sparkling red.

“It’s not a Syn to want to spray this all over your palate and your mates’, too. Leconfield might be an unlikely source of top quality, effervescent bubblies, being Cabernet specialist producers, but they clearly know how to get the party started.”

Matthew Jukes,
UK Wine Writer & Author of “The Wine List”

Leconfield Syn Cuvee Blanc excites your senses and is an excellent Aussie sparkler.

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.”

McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale is predominately a red wine region, producing some of the best red wines in South Australia. Vineyards were first planted in the mid 1800s. One of the early pioneers Thomas Hardy established a business that evolved to BRL Hardy, one of the largest wine companies in the country. The region also has a healthy number of boutique wineries that consistently make fine wines and experiment with different wine styles. The climate is warm to hot with dry summers, and benefits from cooling breezes from the St Vincent Gulf. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz (rich, ripe & generous), Cabernet Sauvignon; White – Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc.
