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, with camphor, cumin, anise, and toasted fennel seed in the background. The palate is fine with structural tannins and bright acidity. Again, cherries and mulberries are present with savoury oak char and subtle dark chocolate within.
Review of the 2016 vintage included below;
"96/100. Interesting combination of predominantly shiraz plus five per cent malbec and a dollop of viognier. Aromas are quite beautiful, with cherry scents and a touch of floral apricot pith. One of the finest shiraz from Leeuwin, displaying complexity at another level. A hint of cracked pepper and licorice adds to the complexity. Outstanding." - Ray Jordan, The Weekend West Magazine, 20 April 2019.
Leeuwin Estate is undoubtedly one of the icon wineries of Australia. Located in the picturesque Margaret River region, the team at Leeuwin Estate have earned an international reputation for making wines that rank alongside the world's finest.
Undoubtedly the star of Leeuwin Estate is their 'Art Series' Chardonnay, that over the past 28 vintages has firmly established itself as one of Australia's greatest white wines, with an extraordinary level of depth and power.
Leeuwin Estate also produce some fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling under their 'Art Series' label, while wines under the lesser-priced 'Prelude' series regularly deliver outstanding value for money.
