Leconfield estate was established in 1974 by pioneering oenologist Sydney Hamilton.

The majority of this wine was grown in McLaren Vale and harvested early in the season to ensure delicacy and natural acidity. The pinot noir was allowed to undergo malo-lactic fermentation to enhance the creaminess of the palate and the components have been allowed to mature on primary yeast lees for 4 months to give the wine a luxuriant texture. Following natural secondary fermentation, the wine was liqueured ready for consumption.
