Tasting Notes

Dense and concentrated nose with blackcurrants, blueberries and boysenberries. A delicate fragrant lift of violets, lavender offer beautiful symmetry and balance. Laced beneath complex spices of cumin, clove, black cardamom and star anise, surrounded by an oceanic nuance throughout.

Full of energy and vitality with elegant shape and frame, again black and blue fruits dominate the palate. There is dimension, drive, and penetration to the finish. Specifically, there are olive notes, combined with dried thyme, cedar and quartz-like minerality that weaves through to powdery graphite tannins.

Accolades & Awards

97 Point Rated - Erin Larkin Haliday Wine Companion

"Wow. Silky smooth aromas of red berries, grey minerality (granite, graphite, etc) and breaths of oceans air whispered about. The palate is exactly as the nose promises, elegant and refined. Length of flavour is where this really kicks into gear, extending seamlessly across the palate, lingering and swirling in its profile. Beautiful, classical cabernet from a cool vintage. What a pleasure this is."


97 Point Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review

"Brilliantly deep, brooding red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant, with loads of cassis, violet and blackberry varietal fruit, expertly infused with cedary oak notes. The wine is very intense and powerful, full-bodied and well structured, the cassis flavours rocketing through on the very extended finish and aftertaste. A majestic cabernet."


96 Point Rated - Sarah Ahmed Decanter

"From a cool year, this is perfumed and intense. With buoyant acidity, the silky, cedar-edged cassis, mulberry, blueberry and red cherry fruit gathers impetus through the palate. Notes of sage, anise, bitter chocolate, terracotta and gravel lend savoury and textural nuance. Powdery cocoa tannins and vibrant acidity tease out the finish. Poised, but lingering, medium-bodied and elegant, it is drinking beautifully now, but will go some distance."


95 Point Rated - Ken Gargett Wine Pilot

“2% of Malbec is included in this cracking Margaret River Cabernet. 22 months in total in a mix of barrels and barriques. There has never been any doubt over the stunning quality of the Art Series Chardonnay, but it has taken longer for this wine to reach its current stratospheric levels. Indeed, the Leeuwin reds are one of the big improvers in the region over recent decades. Deep purples here. Black fruits dominate with plums and mulberries. Spices, dry herbs and some gravelly notes. A wine that is concentrated and with deceptive grip, but a wine that is still exhibiting elegance. The balance between fine acidity, silky tannins and impressive length is knife-edge. This is a quality Margaret River Cabernet.”


95 Point Rated - Barry Weinman Fine Wine Club

"Fresh, vibrant and pretty red berry fruit, but with subtle depth that sets this apart from the ordinary. So long, fine, and elegant, with a silky texture. Very serious yet amazingly, drinking brilliantly now."


94 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front

“It’s a good wine, it’s obvious that it is, but just how good? For starters it needs to be decanted; it needs air. I thought at first that this wine was just a bit too medium-bodied; it just didn’t seem to quite have the requisite power. But as it breather the finish kept inching out and extending. It has a cool flowing feel to it, in that alpine herb and mint notes drift through ripe curranty fruit, but it also feels balanced, ripe and even-handed. That said, everything about this wine is focussed on the finish, and on excelling there. By the time I’d sent an hour or two with it the word impeccable has passed my lips. It grows on you as it grows in the glass.”


94 Point Rated - James Suckling JamesSuckling.com

“This has a very vivid core of red plums and mulberries with very nicely fitted oak and spice. The palate has a wrap of sturdy tannin and silky texture at the edges. Fresh, red-fruit flavors hold the finish long.”


90 Point Rated - Mike Bennie The Wine Front

Blind tasted in a panel – 60-or-so cabernet-based wines from Western Australia.

"Booze-soaked berries, plums, liquorice, mocha and some meat dripping characters. Savoury to taste, more of the boozey berries, good sense of power, ripple of firm tannin, chewy finish and slightly sour tang to close. OK feel here."


17.5 points MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator

"Aromatic and extremely complex, a big wine with many nuances. Green olive, cedar, blueberry and wild blackberry flavors are at the core of this dense, succulent red, with velvety, polished tannins. Complexity only gains on the finish, where nuances of tobacco, thyme, sarsaparilla and Earl Grey tea linger."



Technical

Leeuwin Estate is one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district. In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, first 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 who founded Leeuwin Estate in 1974. The initial vineyards were planted by hand over a five year period from 1975. Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, Leeuwin Estate is now under the direction of two generations of the founding family.
