Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention.

    Cabernet Sauvignon has been the flagship of Leconfield since the first monumental release in 1977. The aim is to produce a Cabernet wine displaying depth and elegance where oak complexes and enhances the fruit but is not allowed to dominate. Following inoculation to saccharomyces cerevisiae, some components are treated to barrel ferments in predominantly French oak, the balance is held for an extended skin maceration before pressing, achieving the well established statuesque Leconfield style. Following completion of malolactic and a period of exposure to lees in barrel, Leconfield is treated to a year and a half in a high proportion of new French and American oak hogsheads.
    Deep red, crimson hues. Augmenting the elegant cassis and blackberry fruit aromas, are scented cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar notes. Fine, medium bodied palate, showing the cassis flavours of traditional Coonawarra Cabernet. Fine velvety tannins balance the textured sweetness of fruit. A tight clean finish, approachable as a youthful wine, the elegance will complement continental inspired recipes.
