Producent: Leconfield & Richard Hamilton Wines
Region: McLaren Vale
Our grapes for this wine come from two vineyards just to the south of McLaren Vale: Farm Block, planted in 1985 and Hut Block, planted in 1998. We take the approach of making a structured Merlot with good depth and a fine background of tannin while retaining the opulence typical of the variety. Individual batches were pressed prior to dryness then oak matured following malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was assembled then bottled in May 2017. The style of wine to which we aspire is one that shows good length and sweet fruit with well structured tannins and excellent length – a more up-market Australian style.
