Overview

A bright and perfumed nose marrying lifted floral notes of jasmine and citrus blossom with lemon flesh, lime zest, blackcurrant, Pink Lady apples and mangosteen. Beneath, subtle complex notes of vanilla seeds, cinnamon quill and musk highlight an incredibly varietal nose. The palate is tight and fine with generous persistence. Tahitian lime, lemon curd, white nectarine and black pastilles combine together and are dirven by a sparkling acid line. Delicate creaminess and spice is threaded throughout the mid palate, offering depth, texture and length.

Expert Reviews

In the heartland of Leeuwin Estate's elegant style, achieving this elegance without sacrificing complexity (achieved by 30% barrel fermentation) and varietal intensity/ purity - most of all its exceptional length and persistence. What you don't have is the wham bam thank you mam of tropical fruit. Rating 95 - Drink by 2016, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014).

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.
