Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant before serving.

This muscular Cabernet is crafted by Australia’s iconic Leeuwin Estate who are best known for their exquisite Art Series Chardonnay. Located in the country’s highly-rated Margaret River wine region, the estate was purchased in 1969 by Denis Horgan, a businessman from Perth. Three years later the legendary winemaker Robert Mondavi visited the property and recognised the potential for making exceptional wines. Thanks to low yields and an ideal microclimate, Leeuwin now produces one of Australia’s finest Chardonnays as well as some very impressive red wines.

The vineyard where the grapes for this wine are sourced is planted with the Houghton clone on sandy gravel soils. The estate picks each parcel individually and a small amount of Malbec is added to the Cabernet to add a softer texture and richer mouthfeel.

In the winery the grapes are destemmed and vinified with the young wine then matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. The nose is bursting with ripe black fruit along with hints of cocoa, leather and licorice. On the palate there is a generous full body, smooth yet firm tannins and a very long finish seasoned with baking spice and toasted oak.
