Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon

"The muscular but opulent Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is an important southern Margaret River style with blackcurrant earthy aromas, underlying oak and strong gravelly tannin structures. The vineyard, 30-60 metres above sea level, is located on deep gravel and loamy soils over sandy gravels. Individual parcels are selected in the vineyard and picked at optimum ripeness and flavour. The wine is batch-vinified and partially whole bunch fermented in closed fermenters, then left on skins for around three weeks before pressing. It is matured in 25-40% new French oak and used Chardonnay barrels for about two years. A proportion of Petit Verdot (structure and colour), Malbec (mid palate richness) and Merlot (softness) is included to add complexity. "Andrew Caillard MW
