Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz 2020


In Stock

“The 2020 Art Series Shiraz is complex and dense in the mouth. It has considerably more fruit power and concentration in the mouth than the cool 2021 release tasted alongside. There is red and purple fruits, alongside a skein of shapely savory tannin. It is fully resolved and ductile, very good, almost savory (a very good thing). The fruit for this wine was wholly sourced from the estate Peppy Park vineyard, 17 kilometers south of the main estate vineyard in Boodjidup. The fruit went over a sorting table, followed by a five-day cold soak. There is up to 20% whole bunch in this cuvée (none in 2017 or 2019), and it is composed of 100% WA Clone. The wine was matured for 18 months in 600-liter demi-muids (Rhone and a Bordelais coopers). “Our priority is opening up the canopies to obtain proper solarization of bunches,” said Lovett.”
