A clear expression of primary fruit unfolds into a delicate, contoured and layered mid-palate, neatly laced with a fine acid structure. Again, the hallmark fruits of pear and lime arepresent,with secondary notes of oyster shell, lightly toasted almonds and nutmeg. Presence, poise and enviable length combine in symmetry, creating anarticulating line and dimension.
Leeuwin Estate, a boutique, family owned and operated winery located in the picturesque Margaret River district. Established as Margaret River’s fifth founding winery in 1974 by Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Robert Mondavi as consultant and mentor, today Leeuwin Estate is under the direction of two generations of the founding family. Leeuwin Estate was named as one of The Heritage Five in Langton’s Classificatinon VII; “most iconic Australian wines … of the Exceptional Classification.” The 2016 Art Series Shiraz has been named ‘Best Wine’ out of a tasting of 600 wines for Ray Jordan’s Top 100 Reds. Jordan states “…in many ways it is a breakthrough in style, delivering its payload with such deft touch… This is clearly one of the finest shiraz from Leeuwin,
displaying complexity at another level.”
