"Splash for your cash... Full bodied and unbelievable value for a wine made from Clare Valley Fruit.."

Matthew Dukes, UK Wine Communicator
of the Year
In 1893 four eminent South Australians
recognised the potential of the now revered Clare
Valley and established Leasingham Wines.
Magnus Badger, a solicitor, was one of these
enterprising pioneers. This richly flavoured full-bodied wine pays tribute to his contribution to
the development of the region and Leasingham
Wines. A blend of Shiraz and Cabernet
Sauvignon, the wine displays all the hallmarks of
the Clare Valley and Leasingham style: sweet
fruit concentration and boldness of structure.
This wine is deep ruby red in colour and has brilliant clarity. On the nose the wine displays lifted aromas of plum and black cherry with a hint of underlying earthy tobacco leaf. The palate shows sweet fruit flesh with finely textured tannins. Characters of mulberry and plum fruit are balanced with nutmeg spice and coffee mocha oak. The palate is soft and round with lingering persistence.
