Leeuwin Estate is one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district.
 
In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, first identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan who founded Leeuwin Estate in 1974. The initial vineyards were planted by hand over a five year period from 1975. Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, Leeuwin Estate is now under the direction of two generations of the founding family.

Deep red/purple: an outstanding colour in depth and hue. The bouquet is clean, fresh and alive, with bright black fruit and violet aromas, touches of cedar and toasty oak, the palate very deep and concentrated, with lush fruit and abundant tannins, which counter-balance the fruit and sweetness. A powerful yet elegant cabernet with a very long and distinguished future ahead of it. An outstanding, profound wine. Drink: 2019 to 2041; Price: $68.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

I very much appreciate a wine that feels ‘dense’ but isn’t ‘heavy’. Here’s a fine example. Black fruit, redcurrant, hazelnut and menthol, coffee bean and sweet fragrant herbs and leaf. It’s medium bodied, but dense and well packed, with fine-grained tannin, hazelnut and praline, cool acidity, and a very much offers a ‘classic Cabernet’ experience. It’s long too, and packed with tannin and interest. Excellent. Superb release from Leeuwin. Drink: 2018 - 2033+; Price: $68.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Aromas of black licorice, black berry and rust. Hot stone. Full body, layered and juicy with loads of fresh fruit and chewy tannins. Sexy, muscular cabernet with tone and focus. Screw cap. Hard not to drink now. Better in 2022 but gorgeous now. Rating: 96 Points; James Suckling

The unadorned purity of this cabernet follows precisely in the footsteps of its predecessors. It is unlike most other Margaret River cabernets, a red brother to the Art Series Chardonnay, even if not quite as magical as that wine. The '13 regional vintage was highly rated at the time, a rating justified today. Drink by: 2038; Price: $67.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2017; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion
