Winemaker's Notes

Daily Telegraph, Sydney

"This wine is nothing short of tremendous..."
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.
