Leconfield

Read about Leconfield
Leconfield Coonawarra was established by noted
oenologist, Sydney Hamilton, in the southern half
of the Coonawarra strip, continuing the Hamilton
family wine industry heritage which dates from 1837.
The Leconfield Coonawarra vineyard occupies
some of the area’s richest terra rossa soil over
limestone, a composition for which Coonawarra is
famous. During his winemaking career spanning
nearly 60 years, Sydney was highly regarded for his
contribution to the industry. In 1981, with 65 vintages
under his belt, Sydney decided to finally retire and
Leconfield was acquired by his nephew, Dr Richard
Hamilton. Richard, fifth generation wine grower,
had already been inspired by his viticulturist father
Burton, to establish his own winery and vineyards at
McLaren Vale in 1972.

Since acquiring Leconfield Coonawarra from his
uncle Sydney, Richard and his wife Jette have
built up their vineyard holdings, some of which
are in excess of 100 years old. These holdings
are comprised not only of Burton’s McLaren Vale
vineyards but also his Uncle Sydney’s winery and
vineyards in Coonawarra. Leconfield Cabernet
Sauvignon remains the flagship wine and today
Leconfield’s winemaking direction is driven by highly
regarded winemaker, Paul Gordon.
