Art Series Shiraz
Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz - Margaret River, Australia - 75cl
The “Art Series” represents Leeuwin’s most opulent & ageworthy wines from each vintage. The Art Series Shiraz labels exclusively feature the artworks of Australia’s Aboriginal artists, including artworks from a number of Aboriginal artists based in the remote and spectacular Western Australia Kimberley region.
An abundace of bursting blackcurrants, boysenberries and mulberries glide between sweet and toasted spices of black cardamom, cinnamon quill and nutmeg. Offset are perfumed notes of violets, anise, dark chocolate, camphor and Sichuan peppercorns. The palate is finely poised, yet with a generous mid palate weight. Vibrant and opulent black and blue fruits mesh with dried cranberries, caramel and cocoa notes. The tannins are tactile and structural providing direction and length.

Artwork: Naomi Hobson, entitled 'Sweet Teatree Water'
About Leeuwin Estate
When Robert Mondavi visited the Margaret River region in the 1960s, he spotted the potential for winemaking on the property that will become this iconic estate. The ideal microclimate combined with very low yields and careful winemaking have allowed Leeuwin Estate to become one of Australia's finest. Their Art Series Chardonnay and Cabernet are among the country's most sought-after labels.
