Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962. Two generations later, the brothers Tom and Guy Adams took a similar leap of faith and.. The goodly farms of brothers in arms»

Xavier Bizot can make wine anywhere he pleases, he is a Bollinger and grew up amongst the Vignobles Superieurs of Champagne. Bizot has chosen to make wine alongside Brian Croser's family, from grapes harvested off three magnificent sites, on two paradoxically varied terrains. Planted to the salubrious Terra rosa soils atop an invaluable archeological dig at Wrattonbully, rich with the undisturbed fossils of ancient Cenozoic sea animals, Crayeres Vineyard was established right across the road from Tapanappa's illustrious Whalebone. The weather here is astonishingly similar to Bordeaux and makes an awesome Cabernet Franc. Xavier Bizot and Lucy Croser are also.. The twin tales of terre a terre»

Leconfield Coonawarra Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Coonawarra South Australia
Leconfield occupies some of the Coonawarra's richest Terra rosa over limestone soils, a composition that's idyllic for vintages of superior new world Shiraz. The aim is to craft a wine endowed with great palate depth and weight of fruit whilst retaining elegance, where oak complexes and enhances the fruit but is not allowed to dominate. Several components of Leconfield complete their fermentations in barrel while the balance is treated to extra time on skins before pressing and filling into the highest quality French oak for an extravagant, extended maturation.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$275.00
The signature style of Leconfield, from mature adult vines grown to rich Terra rossa soils, the bunches are treated to a detailed hand clean following the initial pruning and harvest. Much of the wine completes fermentation in French oak, assembled with a component that's been treated to extended contact on grape skins for several weeks. Leconfield is matured nineteen months in a selection of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads with several workings to soften the tannins and fill out the flavour, followed by a light egg fining and gentle filtration.
Rich red colour. Ripe plum and cassis nose, red cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Palate displays an excellent depth of rich dark peppery plum fruit flavours supported by ripe, long tannins, full of flavour while retaining elegance and finesse. Leconfield will develop cedary characters as the lovely primary fruit evolves. A wine to be savoured in a large glass to the accompaniment of the best beef and gourmandise game.
