Winery Tasting Notes


Dark chocolate core, with crimson hue.


Aromatic and complex, the nose has dense blueberries, raspberries and hints of rhubarb. Beneath, rose petals, coffee bean and anise marry with cedar, bay leaf and fresh tobacco. All elements are well integrated, which is exemplary of this classical blend.


Contoured and textured, the palate is defined by woven layers of plump ripe red fruits, silky fine tannins and a sparkling acid structure. Plums, cherries and currants combine with black olives, hints of leather and toasted cedar, which carry through to form a seamless finish.

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.
