Leeuwin Riesling Art Series Margaret River Rrp25 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is herbal and a little stinky right out of the bottle though with time it picks up sweet grapefruit aromas with a hints of apricot and passion fruit adding complexity. A bit loosely knit on entry, this is easy drinking and transparent but lacks both depth of flavor and complexity. The finish is a bit short as well. 84pts

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.

Light straw-green; an ever-reliable riesling that has legions of admirers in a national climate lukewarm about the variety; the only problems with the wine is that it sells out so quickly. James Halliday. A Riesling wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2010 Leeuwin Estate Riesling Art Series 750ml
