Leconfield 2008 Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Sadly very little left of this magnificent red. Gold medal at Sydney 2010 and widely regarded as their best yet.
Here are the Leconfield Website notes

Full rich dense red

The wine has ripe cassis Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with hints of mint overlayed with predominantly French oak to give cedar and cinnamon overtones. Expect the wine to develop classic cigar box characters with age.

Full flavoured rich fruit palate with fine long tannins, the palate has excellent richness which reflects the early warmer vintage but still retains the elegance expected of Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate finishes with a clean acidity

Food Suggestions:
A wine to be savoured in a large glass in the accompaniment of medium to full flavoured dishes. Try it with venison or quail and roasted vegetables.

Cellaring Potential:
Excellent on release and will age over the next 10-15 years. Expect the cedar and cigar box characters to develop with time.

Our Price: $25 pb by the doz
