Leeuwin Estate Art Series Riesling Margaret River 2019
Leeuwin Estate releases wines under the Art Series, Prelude Vineyards and Siblings labels. The “Art Series” represents Leeuwin’s most opulent and age-worthy wines and are identified with paintings commissioned from leading contemporary Australian Artists. Prelude Vineyards wines are made from fruit producing the most readily expressive wines, with the objective that they will drink well soon after release, whilst the Siblings label celebrates family lineage and the many generations now leaving their footprints on Leeuwin Estate.
The Art Series Riesling is a long time favorite for Australian riesling with stone, flint and spice character. From 40+year-old original plantings, the 2018 Riesling Art Series is very pretty on the nose with honeysuckle, peach blossom and lime cordial notes, as well as a touch of anise. Light-bodied and dry, with great intensity, this wine has approachable softness and great length.
