In 25 vintages the Leaconfield Cabernet has developed an envious reputation for its commitment to the highest quality. The maturity of the vineyard combined with the Terra Rossa soils and underlying limestone produce richly flavoured wines with wonderful depth and elegance at relatively low alcohol (13.5% for both Cabernet and Shiraz in 2002).
The opaque purple-colored 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is impressive. Full-bodied, chewy, and dense, it offers copious quantities of creme de cassis along with notions of chocolate, cedarwood, and smoke.

Situated in the Limestone Coast zine of South Australia, the Coonawarra wine region is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon; so much so that success with other grape varieties is often overlooked. It is relatively new to wine-making - from 1890 to 1945 most of the wine was distilled into brandy - but today the famous terra rossa (or red soils) on which all the early vineyards were planted produce predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wines, full of plum and blackcurrant fruit.

For full-bodied to powerful wines, which are expressive but also show minerality and smooth character. Accentuates complexity and finesse.
Ideal for: All types of Wine. Great as a small Red Wine Glass or an all round White Wine Glass. Adequate for Rosé too. Espeically good for: Chardonnay, Chianti, Riesling and ‘Smaragd’ – wines from the Wachau.
