We avoid using the descriptor 'sensational' because it is abused by too many wine marketeers. We can recall one wine newsletter where every product featured was sensational - but what the fellow neglected to say was that sensational can be both good and bad, and most of the wine being sold happened to be sensationally bad. The Leconfield Merlot is 'sensationally good' and a result of a very great vintage at Coonawarra. Deep crimson mauve colour. Superb lifted nose, wonderful aroma juxtaposition, leather, truffles and earth counterpointed by ripe mulberry, liquorice, chocolate and spice. The palate is equally impressive and is an indication of the very low yield (less than 2 tonnes per acre), the great growing season and masterful winemaking of Ralph Fowler. Mulberry, chocolate and spice flavours fill the mouth, remarkable length and persistence. Velvet smooth tannins, indicative of a long maceration, with exceptionally long aftertaste. Outstanding and a must! Cellar 4-5 years.
