Deeply coloured black as night heart with a dark red black hue. The bouquet shows alluring aromatics of red to black currant, mulberry and violets have a perfumed like intensity and are complimented by dusty vanillin cedar, tobacco and bay leaf notes to complete what is a wonderful bouquet. Marrying power with finesse, the palate has a Bordeaux like aristocracy to it. Rich red to black currant and mulberry fruits seamlessly meld into vanillin cedar, tobacco, light earthy black olive characters and bay leaf. Beautiful integration of tannins and acidity provide a great framework for the longer term. Polished and refined it finishes with a regal elegance.

Leeuwin Estate is one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district, known for consistently producing wines that rank with the world's finest. In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, American winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard. In 1974, under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan a vineyard was planted, and by 1978 the Leeuwin Estate winery building was opened, celebrating with a trial vintage. Now under the direction of two generations of the founding family.
