Leewin Estate West Australia Art Series Riesling 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 91 Pale gold. Waxy, honeyed and minerally on the nose, with vibrant fruit notes of yellow apple, Bosc pear and white peach. Then quite broad on the palate, with a wide range of fruit flavors: Meyer lemon, ruby-red grapefruit, lime and white peach. Very dry and firm on the back end, with a refreshing hit of quinine adding refreshment. The crisp minerality carries impressively through the finish. Wine Tasting Notes Color is very pale straw with lime green hues. The nose indicates the quality of the wine's style with a combination of lifted floral orange blossom and lime aromas with flinty edges. A wine of good length displaying the typical Riesling flavors of citrus fruits. Featuring a combination of lime and mandarin the palate evolves into a finish of balanced acidity. This clean fresh and crisp style of wine lends itself to be enjoyed with freshly shucked oysters and Asian dishes.

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. Read less
