In 1974, at 76 years of age, with a winemaking career spanning nearly 60 years, Sydney Hamilton (1898-1987) selected a fine piece of ‘Terra Rossa’ country at Coonawarra to fulfill a life’s ambition, to grow and produce a classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. He named the estate Leconfield, after his English ancestor, Lord Leconfield, and set about establishing a remarkable reputation for Leconfield Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
