Shiraz

75cl * 13.5% ABV * Margaret River, Australia

Leeuwin Estate is known for producing some of the finest wines, released under their 'Art Series' label, in the entirety of Australia. Famously, Robert Mondavi - of California wine fame - visited the property in the early 1970s and recognised its potential for making exceptional wines.

This Shiraz has gentle textures, woven layers and bright acidity. Dense Satsuma plums, redcurrants and raspberries surround the mid palate. Elements of smoked cedar and cracked coffee bean combine with a mineral thread, leading to long structural tannins. An abundance of ripe cassis, plums and sweet, toasty spice followed by a dollop of dark chocolate and cherry brandy flavour for added measure. Precise and focused in Leeuwin's signature style with some desirable pepperiness and mouth-watering acidity, it is a superb, relatively tame style of Shiraz for Aussie standards. 

“Very deep crimson. Leathery tannins and saline. Clever but youthful. Very polished. Dry end and very vigorous.” 17++ / 20 points. Jancis Robinson, November 2022

"Brilliant, bright colour with hues of crimson and purple on the fringes. The palate is in that medium zone, with an effortlessly graceful ease about it. Spicy and perfumed with a mix of cherry and plum. Oak, which is a mix of one, two and new oaks, is brilliantly managed to gently coax all that is good from this variety. Love the mouth feel and the long, focused chalky feel in the mouth." 96 Points, Ray Jordan, West Australian Wine Guide
