Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The Art Series label is Leeuwin Estate's flagship, now one of the greatest and most recognised fine wine labels in the world. The 2017 vintage is deeply coloured, aromatic with red and black fruits and attractive floral and spice notes. It is intensely flavoured, concentrated but characteristically elegant on the palate of ripe blackberry and cassis with hints of pencil lead, cocoa and vanilla. Fine-grained tannins underpin this accomplished and deservedly lauded wine.

Leeuwin Estate is one of the earliest commercial wineries in the Margaret River region of Western Australia, where the gentle maritime climate is well suited to the production of fine chardonnay and cabernet. The estate was founded in the 1970s by Denis and Tricia Horgan who where advised by the famous Robert Mondavi of California that the site was ideal for fine wine production.
The first vintage was in 1979 and since then the estate has gone from strength to strength, consistently producing chardonnays that rank among the world’s finest and gaining recognition in international blind tastings. As well as an impressive range of wines, Leeuwin Estate now boasts a top-class restaurant and an art gallery. Labelled with original artworks, Art Series is the winery’s prestige range and the chardonnay bottled under this label, famous for its superb perfume, opulence and ability to age, is arguablyAustralia’s finest example of the grape, year-in year-out. The Prelude range is a more accessible expression of Leeuwin fruit, made with the objective of offering enjoyable drinking soon after release.
Leeuwin are great believers in the screwcap closure and have even rebottled older library stock, painstakingly opening each bottle, tasting it, and then topping it up with another bottle from the same vintage before resealing with screwcap.
