Leeuwin Estate is one is the most respected vineyard in Margaret river.
Lifted, bright and briary, the palate expresses dark black cherries, blueberries and mulberries. Chocolate, caramel and anise surround the fruit spectrum with elevated floral notes of rose and subtle violets.
Plushly textured, the palate has concentration with boysenberry and redcurrants present. Black cardamom, anise and clove sit in balance providing complexity. It is integrated and finely woven with subtle sweet oak, a delicate acid line and chalky structural tannins.
Family owned, Leeuwin Estate, one of the five founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia, is under the direction of two generations who work with a team of highly skilled winemakers to consistently produce wines ranking alongside the world's finest. 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. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay. The international accolades have continued and Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets. Celebrating the combination of fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin features an award winning restaurant, cellardoor and art gallery. The Estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.
