Expert Reviews

"Leeuwin took time to come to terms with its Shirazs, but is now master of its destiny. It has black cherry and plum flavours in superabundance, plus finely tuned tannins, its modest alcohol is the key."Rating 96 - James Halliday, Wine Companion 2017

"Leeuwin's Shiraz has taken a giant leap forward since the variety was reinvented some years ago. This is a beauty. Rich and concentrated with layers or dark plum, spices and savoury oak characters all merging, and a decent dollop of chocolate swirling throughout. The dusty, chalky tannins add to the structure, while the oak treatment is excellent."95 points - Ray Jordan, West Weekend, April 2/3 2016

Winery Tasting Notes

An Amazing display of blue berries, blackberries, anise, dark chocolate and a subtle gaminess. This concentrated and inky bouquet also has highlights of violets and sweet caramel. The palate shows the same intensity as the nose with a layered concentration of flavours on the entry with depth and persistent nuances of dense blackberry underpinned by light roasted coffee beans and dark forest fruits. Elegant French oak and peppery fine tannins elongate the length of this wine delivering a long and lingering finish.
