After an extensive search in 1972 to identify the most suitable Australian area for the production of premium varietal wines, Robert Mondavi singled out a small plot of land in the Margaret River region. At the time a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved under the direction of owners Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. The Estate was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter magazine awarded their highest recommendation to the 1980 Art Series Chardonnay. Now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, the Estate is recognized as one of Australia’s leading wine producers and wine tourism pioneers. Featured three times in the prestigious category of “International Winery of the Year” by U.S. Wine & Spirits magazine, Leeuwin Estate wines nconsistently rank alongside the world’s finest.

Very heavy petrol on the nose with kaffir lime leaf. Subtle spice on the palate with loads of slate minerality. Rather like a mouthful of rocks and not enough fruit for me, to balance it. Not my style. 79 pts. 5/18/13

The 2008 Art Series Riesling gives up a nose of mineral, petrol, acacia, and citrus. Light in body with lively acidity, this tasty effort will evolve for 2-3 years and drink well through 2016. -Jay Miller Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Riesling wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2008 Leeuwin Estate Riesling Art Series 750ml

Riesling from Western Australia at its finest. Ripe peach aromas, medium-bodied and dry.
