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 Shiraz 2017
It’s a creamy expression of Margaret River shiraz. It feels soft and smooth, aided by vanilla-accented oak. It tastes of cherry plum, bay leaf and clove, emphasis on the plum, with cedarwood and spice as afterthoughts. If you’re really oak-averse than this wine isn’t for you but for everyone else there’s a lot of pleasure to be had here.
