Professional Wine Reviews for Leeuwin Estate Riesling Art Series 2015

Rated 92 by Vinous Media
Green-tinged straw. High-pitched citrus zest and floral aromas carry a smoky mineral overtone and a background hint of quinine. Vibrant, dry and focused on the palate, offering intense lime and green apple flavors that deepen and become juicier with air. Shows impressive tension and a bright mineral character on the incisive finish, which leaves behind bitter citrus pith and honeysuckle notes.
Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast
Tasted blind, this wasn’t particularly different from the other Rieslings in its flight, which were predominantly South Australian. It’s got those same wet stone and citrus tendencies and is made in the same medium-bodied, dry, high-acid style. There’s a touch of pineapple as well, plus a long, dry crisp finish.

Winery Leeuwin Estate

Region: Margaret River

The region of Margaret River is a beautiful part of south west Australia, and has proven to be one of the most versatile and successful wine regions in the country. Many experts have claimed that the climatic conditions of Margaret River are remarkably similar to those found in the Bordeaux, several thousand miles away in France. As such, it should come as no surprise that many Bordeaux varietals, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon thrive well there, and grow to full ripeness in the blazing sunshine, thus expressing plenty of delicious fruity flavors. Currently, Margaret River has around fifty thousand hectares under vine, and this coastal region boasts over a hundred and fifty wineries, which produce up to twenty percent of Australia's wines.

Country: Australia

Despite much of Australia being covered by dry, arid deserts and bushland, the southern regions of the country and islands such as Tasmania have proved to be ideal for vineyard cultivation and wine production. The fertile soils and brisk oceanic breezes, coupled with the blazing Australian sunshine allow the grapes to grow to full ripeness before a late harvest, resulting in hugely flavorful wines which appeal to a wide international audience. Combine this with the experimental and daring approach Australian wineries have in regards to wine production, and it becomes clear why Australia has relatively quickly become something of a world leader when it come to exporting their produce to Europe and America. The Shiraz and Chardonnay grape varietals have produced the most successful and broadly appreciated results over the decades, however, in more recent years wineries have begun experimenting with a much wider range of grape varietals, demonstrating how Australian wineries are continuing to adapt and develop alongside international palates.
