    Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon | Langton's 'Outstanding' Classification (VII 2018)

    Few stories can be told about modern Australian wine without mentioning the amazing rise of Margaret River, and Leeuwin Estate as a pioneer. Founded by Denis and Tricia Horgan in 1979, it is the star estate of Margaret River’s southern area; with a particular pedigree in its famed Chardonnay, but also relatively recent acclaim for Cabernet and Shiraz.

Press Review

    Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    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.

    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.

    A later vintage, which required a little courage to wait until the fruit hit that perfect ripeness. This one has emerged really well. It’s a medium-bodied and stylish cabernet. Has a leafy, floral, red berry and slightly brick-dust character to complement. The palate is so seamlessly woven with fine, chalky tannins and integrated oak working harmoniously. Bright with a high-energy finish.

    Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    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.

    Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    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.

    Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    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.
