Richard Hamilton Centurion Shiraz 2013

Richard Hamilton Centurion Shiraz 2013 South Australia McLaren Vale

$71.95

Richard Hamilton Centurion Shiraz 2013 – This is a brilliantly concentrated wine full of layers of flavour, texture and richness. Halliday’s ratings for the previous 10 vintages read thus … 97, 97, 95, 96, 97, 95, 96, 95, 96, 95… and this is as good as the very best vintage produced to date, perhaps a smidge better. Produced from a heritage plot of 120+ year old McLaren Vale vines, it will cellar 30 years plus.

The First Family of Wine

The Hamilton Family is one of the original Australian winemaking families. In 1837 Richard Hamilton founded the Hamilton Vineyards, just south of Adelaide. It was planted with stock sent from friends in South Africa shortly after the family’s arrival in South Australia.

Five winemaking generations later, in 1972, Richard’s great-great-grandson, Dr Richard Hamilton established a small winery in McLaren Vale under the guidance of his father Burton, a noted viticulturist, and uncle, renowned vigneron, Sydney Hamilton.

Two years later, at the age of 76, Sydney bought land on the famous ‘terra rossa’ strip in Coonawarra, South Australia and established ‘Leconfield’ to fulfil his life’s ambition of growing and making a classic Australian Cabernet Sauvignon.

Sydney retired in 1981 after 65 vintages and Dr Richard Hamilton purchased the company from him. Leconfield became the single winemaking facility for both the Richard Hamilton Wines and Leconfield Coonawarra brands, securing the family connection to both Coonawarra and McLaren Vale.

Celebrating since 1837 and still making history…
