Leasingham retain many precious vineyards in Valley Clare, well positioned to make the most definitive regional wines. Bin 56 is steeped in history, an exquisite accord of Cabernet Malbec that exhibits all of the virtues which have established Leasingham as one of the nation's most enduring marques.

Since 1912, the Knappstein family have been central to the management of the estate's Clare Valley vineyards. Since 1984 when the production of Stanley casks was moved to New South Wales, Clare Valley Leasingham has been free to concentrate on the production of superior wines. Rich soils and cool, moist conditions are perfect foundations to grow the finest fruit, Clare Valley is renowned throughout the world for Australia's most regionally articulate Cabernet wines. Cool and even ripening conditions encourage grapes to concentrate their flavours while developing refined, elegant tannins. The finished wine is treated to a term of age in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels.
