Leeuwin Estate Offer

Leeuwin Estate

One of the five founding wineries of Margaret River in Western Australia, Leeuwin Estate has built a reputation for excellence over many years. The annual release of their Art Series chardonnay is arguably the most anticipated white wine release in the country, and while cabernet takes a humble seat alongside chardonnay at Leeuwin, it too is a perennial contender for the region's finest. 

The 2015 vintage in Margaret River delivered a magnificent encore to Leeuwin Estate's outstanding 2014 releases. Quality is excellent across the board, with this year's Art Series chardonnay providing a superb sparring partner to last year's much lauded offering, and one which will no doubt provide some entertaining side-by-side tasting over the next decade or so.

This is a vintage that will see these wines blossom in the cellar.
