Expert Reviews

Has a bit of swagger about it. It's meaty and shot with pure, ripe plum flavour but while the tannin is velvety and well integrated it flexes its muscle from the mid-palate onwards, inspiring confidence in the process. You're in sure hands here. Clove, leaf and spice notes play a role, though in general the wine presents as seamless. Rating 95 - Drink by 2030, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes


Fragrant and lifted, the nose has density of fruit, balanced heightened floral notes, with complex spice and oak. Mulberries and blueberries feature with violets and rose petals. Asian five spice, caramel, vanilla bean and cocoa sit in the background.


A finely woven palate that leads to opulent texture through the middle, finishing with generous length and carefully tuned tannins. Again, mulberries and blueberries are the key fruits, which are met with structural oak giving direction and carry. All elements are threaded with a bright and balanced line.

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.
