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.
An array of Kiwi fruits, limes and white peach greet the nose, amidst aromatic floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle, with underlying nettles and honeydew in the background. The palate has presence and poise, initially rounded and textural, there is a refreshing brightness of lemon-like acidity that leads and directs. White peaches again are in abundance, with grilled lemon and finger limes.
