A brilliant light hay in colour with green edges. The bouquet shows intense passionfruit, gooseberry and herbaceous grassy scents leap out of the glass with some subtle green apple and asparagus notes also evident. Bursting across the palate are mouth watering passionfruit and herbaceous gooseberry flavours which are flanked by spicy lime, grassy asparagus characters and flinty mineral elements. Crisp acidity finishing dry with a zippy aftertaste.

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.
