"Wow. Silky smooth aromas of red berries, grey minerality (granite, graphite etc) and breaths of oceans air whispered about. The palate is exactly as the nose promises, elegant and refined. Length of flavour is where this really kicks into gear, extending seamlessly across the palate, lingering and swirling in its profile. Beautiful, classical cabernet from a cool vintage. What a pleasure this is." 97 points Erin Larkin, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion
Leeuwin makes one of the best white wines in the world, there is no arguing that but what has impressed us in recent years is the increasing quality of the reds they are producing. The “Art Series” represents Leeuwin’s most opulent and age-worthy wines and are identified with paintings commissioned from leading contemporary Australian Artists.
FROM THE PRESS
“Brilliantly deep, brooding red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant, with loads of cassis, violet and blackberry varietal fruit, expertly infused with cedary oak notes. The wine is very intense and powerful, full-bodied and well structured, the cassis flavours rocketing through on the very extended finish and aftertaste. A majestic cabernet. 97/100”Huon Hooke, The Real Review
“From a cool year, this is perfumed and intense. With buoyant acidity, the silky, cedar-edged cassis, mulberry, blueberry and red cherry fruit gathers impetus through the palate. Notes of sage, anise, bitter chocolate, terracotta and gravel lend savoury and textural nuance. Powdery cocoa tannins and vibrant acidity tease out the finish. Poised, but lingering, medium-bodied and elegant, it is drinking beautifully now, but will go some distance. 96 points.”Sarah Ahmed, Decanter Premium
