Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance

As with all good sparkling wines there is a good ‘mousse’ in the glass.

Aroma

Bright and fragrant exhibiting grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, Nashi pear and custard apple. Also complex, there lies layers of nougat, brioche, lightly toasted hazelnuts and almond meal.

Palate

Elegant refinement follows a very tight and focused palate defined by immediate lemon flesh and subtle lime, which leads to a delicately textured mid palate. These components are offset, yet complimented by woven secondary characters of blanched almonds and hints of cinnamon. The finish emulates diligent symmetry, underpinned by a balanced and slightly saline acid spine.

Food Matching

Enjoy with freshly caught and prepared crustacean.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Leeuwin Estate, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district, consistently produces wines that rank with the world's finest.

In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, legendary American winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard.

Originally a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved, under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Robert Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor.

A nursery was planted in 1974 and the initial vineyards were deep-ploughed, deep-ripped, emptied of stone, planned, pegged, measured, marked and eventually planted by hand over a five year period from 1975.

Featuring state-of-the art facilities, the winery building was opened in 1978, celebrating with a trial vintage. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979, and was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay in an international blind tasting.

Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, and now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, Leeuwin now exports to over 30 countries.
