Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz, Margaret River, 2019
Since winemaker Tim Lovett arrived at the winery a lot more attention to detail has been focused on the red wines and the quality of juice now being produced is outstanding.
Tim is a huge fan of this varietal and a firm believer of its great potential in the Margaret River. The cooler nights, inspired by the maritime influence, bring a lift and a fragrance to the wine, which remind one of northern Rhône examples of this variety.
Around 20% whole bunch is used, further adding lift and energy. The oak is a mix of new, I-year and 2-year old barriques. This is a very stylish, refined wine of both depth and precision. Astonishing value.
