I wasn’t taken by Leconfield’s 2017 merlot from Coonawarra. It opens to aromas of red berries. The palate is youthful, with a medium-full body. Its acidity seemed noticeable, and the fruit lacking in density. A pleasant enough wine that is ready to drink now. Rating: Acceptable. Abv: 14%. Price: $26. Website: www.leconfieldwines.com.
