Expert Reviews

“Leeuwin has stuck with its riesling despite suggestions Margaret River is not a riesling domain and it continues to pump some terrific wine with this variety. This one is a striking mix of bath salts and floral notes on the nose with a little subdued stone fruit. The palate displays a fine minerally edge with those light citrus tones working well and creating a degree of palate tension with the fine crisp acid. There is a real purity on this vintage which ranks with some of the best for this variety at Leeuwin.”Rating 92 - Ray Jordan, Wine of the Week - The West Australia, 9 May 2013

" Leeuwin Estate, one of Western Australia's best producers, is known for their stunning Artist Series Chardonnays. Well, they now are also known for their Art Series Rieslings, judging by this stellar wine. Dry and stony, the citrus tinged finish lingers seemingly forever. Clean and pure, it cuts this summer's heat and humidity, but would be equally welcome accompanying spicy Asian dishes in the fall."Rating 92 - Michael Apstein, winereviewonline.com, July 14 2013

"Pale colour; ripe Meyer lemons are evident on the bouquet with a touch of coriander and straw; the palate is fleshy, generous and forward, and whilst the finish is dry and chalky, will offer its best drinking in its youth."90 points - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2014

“Bright straw. Lively, mineral-accented aromas of citrus zest, white flowers and candied ginger. Vibrant and precise, offering incisive lime and green apple flavors that put on weight with air. Richer on the very long finish, with its clinging notes of pear and melon.”91 points - Josh Raynolds, The International Wine Cellar, July/August 2013

Winery Tasting Notes


The bouquet shows fragrant and bright notes of lime blossom and cut lemon greet the nose, and are met with underlying hints of kaffir lime leaf and subtle spice.


The palate is taut and focused offering lively lemon curd, lime pith and floral notes. Racy acidity defines the palate and provides great drive. These elements are woven together with a mineral 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.
