Leconfield Wine Types
Leconfield champions the noble varieties, producing six expressive wines in their premium range – Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The wines are fruit forward, generous and can benefit from cellar time.
Leconfield also produces the entry level ‘Syn’ wines and has a hand in the Richard Hamilton wines of McLaren Vale, where an additional Leconfield base is established.
A breadth of winemaking experience between the two key winemakers allows for a melting pot of creative and thoughtful work to take place in the winery. Fruit is key to the winery process, but detail and modern practices complement.
