Leeuwin Art Series Sauvignon Blanc 12pk 2019
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 Sauvignon Blanc 2019
The grapes were crushed and pressed, the juice cold-settled and cultured yeast added, 40% fermented in French barriques, 60% in tank, blended and bottled after 4 months. It all works well, even if you are more usually no great friend of sauvignon blanc.
