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.
Leeuwin Art Series Riesling 2017
Very light yellow colour, with a lovely high-toned flowery bouquet. Classic talcum powder riesling florals. The palate is soft and dry, full-ish and intense, with good focus and precision, if not the greatest refinement. It's quite tangy and dry and needs food.
Rating: 91 Points
