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.

It’s thick with spicy cedar oak, yes, but you taste and swallow, and the length of flavour is just staggering. Oak, fruit power, and length is the Leeuwin formula, with bottle age the key to unlocking it. As at now there’s clove spice, ginger and cedar oak, nashi pear, Tiny Teddies, melon and white flowers. It’s full bodied, spicy and smooth, intense and quite flinty, with cool integrated acidity, and a startlingly long finish. Very much a classic Leeuwin here. Perhaps one of their best.
