2020 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River – Few stories can be told about modern Australian wine without mentioning the amazing rise of Margaret River, and Leeuwin Estate as a pioneer. Founded by Denis and Tricia Horgan in 1979, it is the star estate of Margaret River’s southern area; with a particular pedigree in its famed Chardonnay, but also relatively recent acclaim for Cabernet, Shiraz and other varietals.
A succulent nose that is lively and lifted, grilled lemon, lychee and juicy lime are in abundance. Floral jasmine, nettle and cassia create delicate complexity. Beneath there is subtle wet stone, almost mineral like.
Delicate and moreish, there are layers and textures carrying all the way to the back palate. Lime and lemon coincide with savoury notes of subtle cedar and gentle earthiness. There is phenolic structure that works in symmetry with laced acidity.
