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.

The juice was cold-settled in stainless steel and fermented in tank. In Aug '17 it was tiraged for the secondary ferment in bottle until it was disgorged in Jul '19. Further time on cork may pay dividends.
