LEEUWIN ESTATE SPARKLING BRUT 2015

Wine Region: Margaret River, Australia

Grape: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Primary, bright and delicate, the nose features lemon, apple and grapefruit. Beneath lie layers of nougat, brioche, toasted cashews and elevated jasmine. The palate is tight with subtle texture and a fine bead. Lemon and grapefruit are the leading fruits, offset with almond meal through the mid palate and crisp, fine acid structure.

About the Winery

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.
