Concentrated blueberries, mulberries and plums give density to a nose that also exhibits black cardamom, anise caramel and hickory.
There is subtle lift with rose petals and violets offering further fragrance. Black and blue fruits dominate the palate with upfront weight and texture. Woven fruit layers meet subtle smokey oak creating a layered palate, laced with a finely balanced acid line.
Family owned, Leeuwin Estate, one of the five founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia, is under the direction of two generations who work with a team of highly skilled winemakers to consistently produce wines ranking alongside the world’s finest.
In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1981 “Art Series” Chardonnay.
The international accolades have continued and Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets. Celebrating the combination of fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin features an award winning restaurant, cellar door and art gallery. The Estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.

This Shiraz is powerful yet reserved, fresh yet concentrated and vibrant yet stylish. The Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz Margaret River WA is truly in its own league when it comes to red wine online, and indeed, when compared to many premium Shiraz wines worldwide.
Don’t just take our word for it – The Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz 2015 has been tasted and tested by leading wine critics and connoisseurs – and has been met with glowing reviews. Renowned wine critic Ray Jordan with The West Australian Wine Guide 2019 summed up the allure and inviting aromas and character of this Shiraz better than we ever could:
“Another release showing the dramatic evolution of this variety. It’s mostly Shiraz with a small amount of Malbec. Intense aromas of spices and cloves with savoury oak. The palate has a firmish gravelly character with grainy tannins in support. The oak has been handled with care and works well to allow the fruit sweetness to marry with the savoury characters. Really attractive wine.”
