Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz 2017


“Perhaps the best vintage of this wine I’ve yet tasted, the 2017 Art Series Shiraz reveals the progress Leeuwin Estate has made with this grape, which is often neglected in Margaret River. It’s strongly peppery – a reflection of the cool vintage – but that element is balanced by succulent blueberry and intriguing licorice notes. Full-bodied and supple on the mid-palate, it finishes with a touch of tannic backbone and bright, mouthwatering acids.” 92 points -Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate, January 2020
