LEEUWIN ESTATE ART SERIES SHIRAZ 2015

Wine Region: Margaret River, Australia

Grape: Shiraz

Tasting Notes

An Amazing display of blue berries, blackberries, anise, dark chocolate and a subtle gaminess. This concentrated and inky bouquet also has highlights of violets and sweet caramel. The palate shows the same intensity as the nose with a layered concentration of flavours on the entry with depth and persistent nuances of dense blackberry underpinned by light roasted coffee beans and dark forest fruits. Elegant French oak and peppery fine tannins elongate the length of this wine delivering a long and lingering finish.

Ratings

James Suckling 94 ptsLots of blackberry, blueberry and crush white pepper aromas that follow through to a beautiful palate of quartz, mineral and Indian spice. Full body. Tangy and bright acidity. Intense fruit. Yet always reserved. Screw cap.

Decanter 93 pts - Sourced from near Witchcliffe in the region's cool south, this has attractive spicy plum and blueberry characters. The palate has a lush texture that is medium-bodied yet concentrated, with restrained power and pleasing approachability. Drinking Window 2023 - 2027

Wine Spectator 90 pts - Spice, cedar and cream soda notes are generous and complement the fleshy, ripe raspberry, clove and cherry flavors at the core. Finishes with plenty of style and a fresh, vibrant detail.

About the Winery

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate.
