  • THE BRIEF
  • 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 "Art Series" represents Leeuwin's most opulent & ageworthy wines from each vintage. They are identified with paintings commissioned from leading contemporary Australian artists.

    Variety: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon; 4% Malbec
    Alcohol: 13.5%
    Cellaring Potential: 15-20 years

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A highly expressive and fragrant nose with violet, lavender, bay leaf and fennel seed weaving through a dense core of blackcurrant and red cherry. Subtle anise, cumin, cedar, cracked coffee bean and cocoa lie in the background. The palate has purity and elegance; delicate layers of cherries, blackcurrants and Satsuma plums combine with a vibrant thread of natural acidity, giving direction and focus. Cinnamon and clove are present on the mid - palate which extends long with tightly coiled powdery tannins.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • In 1972, Denis and Tricia Horgan contacted famous American winemaker Robert Mondavi to help them with their plans to turn their cattle farm into a highly respected Margaret River wine producer. The winery enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979. Since that time the Horgans and Leeuwin Estate have made an astounding contribution to Australian wine, most particularly with their Art Series Chardonnay that is still widely considered to be amongst the best this country produces. Recent vintages have also seen their Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon also jump ahead leaps and bounds. Today Leeuwin Estate is also very well known for the excellent concerts held on their grassy knoll directly below the cellar door which draw thousands of visitors every year.

    HUON HOOKE


    Very deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is all about concentrated, perfectly-ripened cabernet fruit embellished with stylish oak. Cedar and berries. The wine is very intense and cast in an elegant but full-bodied style, with red berry fruit in abundance on the palate. The tannins are emphatic but fine and restrained, beautifully tailored. A lovely wine indeed - to cellar or enjoy now.'

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    Silken mouthfeel. Good fruit power. Ultra-fine tannin and impressive length. It’s not a big or burly cabernet but it impresses from the outset, and for all the right reasons. It’s creamy, chocolatey, curranty and varietal, its more herbal side tucked neatly within. Pure cabernet.
