99 Points - Andrew Caillard MW
Long considered one of the shining lights of the Margaret River wine region, the overall quality of wine produced at Leeuwin Estate is at a seemingly all-time high. While their Chardonnay rightfully receives most the headlines, Leeuwin Estate's Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is consistently one of the region's finest examples.
The 2018 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is another top-line example of Margaret River Cabernet, displaying vibrant fruit flavours blueberries, blackcurrant, dark cherries along with some bay leaf, anise and roast coffee. A wine of immense quality and character, worthy of a place in any cellar.
“99 Points..... Deep crimson. Classical blackcurrant cedar aromas with lifted espresso, roasted chestnut notes. Inky deep and beautifully concentrated wine with dense blackcurrant, dark plum, dark chocolate flavours, fine grainy/chocolaty tannins and perfectly integrated cedar oak. A superb grainy firm finish and mineral length. A great Leeuwin Estate Cabernet. Now - 2040"- Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal, March 2022.
"97 Points. One of the last wines released from the great 2018 Margaret River vintage, this has to be one of the finest cabernets yet from Leeuwin. Supremely balanced and poised with stylish lines through to a very long finish. Scented aromas of cedar and leafy blackcurrant with a trace of oyster shell. The palate is quite brilliant with the distinct chalky tannins and super fine grained oak holding the fruit gently to its extended finish. Great wine here. $85. Drink: 2022 - 2040"- Ray Jordan, winepilot.com.
"97 Points. Leeuwin Estate is for me one of the most Bordeaux like of Margaret River’s top line cabernets with its vineyard location at the southern end of the region helping to produce savoury wine styles. It can be a challenge in cooler vintages but when the vintage gods are kind, it is a recipe for something very special, as we have here. Deep crimson, it opens up with understated, but enthralling aromas of red currant, blackcurrant, woody asparagus stems, cedar and cassis with a solid backbone of new oak. There is then great density of fruit to the palate, again not bold but reserved and full of energy; a young, tight ball of vibrant, stylish and youthful flavours exceptionally well balanced with manicured tannins which support an incredibly long, elegant finish. Super impressive and a new benchmark for this label. $85. Drink: 2026 - 2040"- Angus Hughson, winepilot.com.
