Leconfield Manor House Cabernet Sauvignon 2021


One of the great joys of doing this is tasting a wine, scribbling the notes and then checking for a price, expecting something through the roof, only to find nothing of the kind. This is one of the best value Cabernets anywhere in the market today. Granted it is from a great vintage, but I expected it to be two or three times this price. Load up!  An intense, balanced, linear Cabernet. Inky maroon in colour with the nose exhibiting notes of chocolate, blackberries, tobacco leaves, aniseed, mint, spices and ripe plums. The wine is supple and seamless with good acidity, silky tannins and impressive length with a really exciting texture. Still very young and leaving it for two to four years before cracking a bottle would assist, after which it will drink beautifully for another decade or more. A really impressive Coonawarra Cabernet.
