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.
The colour is fresh vibrant pale straw with lime green edges. The bouquet is bursting with lime flesh, lemon pith, guava and subtle nettle, sweet pea and cloves. The palate shows as fresh vibrant lemon citrus zest, with nuances’ of lime and thyme leaves, the feel across the palate is very textural and multi layered from the lees stirring in barrels that took place over seven months, with a great line of acid that gives this wine excellent length.
