The Margaret River’s Leeuwin Estate make an absolutely world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Recently scored at a massive 97 points and described as “the Mouton-Rothschild of Australia”, the 2012 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is clearly superb.
The Art Series are Leeuwin’s flagship bottlings. The most opulent, rich and age-worthy they are always among Australia’s best and, with this rated second of 300 hundred tasted by Suckling for a recent report of Margaret River wines, the 2012 is no exception.
Such quality comes from a combination of superb winemaking allied to a phenomenal terroir specifically chosen for its potential for complex, nuanced and above all ‘fine’ wines. With this compared to the mighty Bordeaux first growth of Mouton-Rothschild, Leewuin are certainly succeeding in their ambition.
