96 Points | "A super wine" - Ray Jordan
Leeuwin Estate has been in rare form lately with a string of favourable vintages allowing it to produce some wonderful examples of Margaret River Shiraz under the 'Art Series' label. The 2017 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz is another impressive offering from the team at Leeuwin, which will certainly have enormous appeal to fans of Margaret River Shiraz.
A myriad of cherries, mulberries and blood plums provide the framework on the nose. The palate is approachable with plenty of vibrant red and black fruit flavours, a hint of dark chocolate and some soft tannin providing lovely structure. A sublime release that demonstrates the lofty heights Margaret River Shiraz is capable of reaching.
"96 Points. Ripe and plush wine showing lovely, spicy plum fruit aromas. There’s even a little red fruit, confectionery character with a dollop of dark chocolate and liqueur. With sweet fruit concentration and grainy, chalky tannins. Really well-integrated palate with a long finish. I think this might be better than in 2016. It’s like the 2012 and the 2014 but with greater weight and palate density. This is a super wine."- Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2021.
"95 Points. Open and closed fermenters with 20% whole bunches, plunged/pumped over daily, pressed to new and used barrels for a total of 18 months in oak. Deep, bright purple-crimson; after early (10 years±) hesitation about the synergy that might be gained from this marriage of wine and place all doubts were comprehensively answered. Lovely medium to full-bodied blackberry and co flavours."- James Halliday, 2021 Halliday Wine Companion.
