Leeuwin Estate Shiraz Margaret River Art Series 2007

Member Review by David Kohl:

The "Art Series" represents Leeuwin's most opulent and age-worthy wines. This Shiraz possesses an amazing intensity of dark fruits with a bouquet of fresh cracked pepper, sweet ripe blackberry, plums and mulberries. You'll taste hints of chocolate and dusty oak on the finish. The fine tannins hold the flavors in your mouth long after drinking. Pair with grilled lamb to enjoy the complementary flavors of this excellent wine.

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.
