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

In south west Australia, the most important wine region by far is surely that of Margaret River, a humid and warm region which produces up to twenty percent of Australia's total wines. Margaret River has been an important wine producing region for some time now, and currently there are around fifty thousand hectares under vine, with around one hundred and fifty wineries using the land there for growing grapes of remarkable quality and flavor. The region is renowned for its versatility, and both red and white grapes thrive well in Margaret River. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz grapes which Australia has become famous for flourish particularly well in the fine climate of Margaret River, alongside excellent white varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Sémillon.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
