5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

“Sydney Hamilton purchased the unplanted property that was to become Leconfield in 1974, having worked in the family wine business for over 30 years until his retirement in the mid 50s. When he acquired the property and set about planting it, he was 76, and reluctantly bowed to family pressure to sell Leconfield to nephew Richard in 81. Richard has progressively increased the vineyards to their present level, over 75% to cabernet sauvignon, for long the winery's specialty.” - James Halliday

"Grapes are sourced from our McLaren Vale and Coonawarra vineyards with our winemakers being intimately involved in every stage of vineyard production and fruit development. Final selection involves only the highest quality fruit being used for our Richard Hamilton and Leconfield labels." - Hamilton (winemaker)
