Art Series Shiraz 2018

2018 Shiraz

Margaret River, WA

Capacity, dimension and texture outline the palate. A matrix of blueberries and redcurrants feature through a background of dark chocolate, cracked coffee bean and tobacco. There is overall energy on the palate highlighted by a vibrant and youthful acid line.

From $41.50 per bottle

    Description

    Dense, dark and intense nose, rich with blueberries, mulberries and plums. Sweet perfume lift provided by violets and five spice. Further complexing notes of black pepper, camphor, mushroom and gaminess increase the bandwidth on the nose.

    Capacity, dimension and texture outline the palate. A matrix of blueberries and redcurrants feature through a background of dark chocolate, cracked coffee bean and tobacco. There is overall energy on the palate highlighted by a vibrant and youthful acid line, finishing with structural chalky tannins.

    "The same layers of complexity and spice as the 2017, with all the ripe fruit and power hallmarks of the 2018 vintage. Bouncy and chewy, the tannins are woven into the fruit. Fruit, oak, acid and tannins are integrated and elegant, showing cohesion and harmony from the get-go. Cool-climate elegance is the lasting impression of this wine, as is the fine, chalky tannin profile that ultimately carries the fruit over the course of the palate. Very detailed. Margaret River can be responsible for seriously beautiful shiraz - this is one."

    “This marks the continuing evolution of shiraz from Leeuwin Estate – this is pretty close to the best since the project to kick start this variety was launched some years ago. It has a sumptuous fruity mix on the palate with gravelly textured tannins and neatly weighted oak, which is a mix of new and slightly older. The new just adds a touch of spicy lift leaving the wine delicious and generous.”

    "There's plenty of white pepper, spice and blue fruit aromatics, really pretty, refined and inviting. The palate is mid-weighted, with a really delicious array of blue fruits, spice, bitter chocolate and firm, grippy, drying tannins that give the wine a lovely line, length and savouriness."
