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 2018
A very good release of this consistent and well liked wine. Sweet citrus is the prevailing theme on the bouquet and palate, although there are riper fruit notes in there as well, including an unlikely hint of pineapple. This vintage seems to have some extra length and really lingers nicely on the finish, both admirable qualities.Rating: 91 Points
