Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The color is a deep violet with brilliant purple edges. The bouquet displays lifted fresh cracked pepper with sweet ripe blackberry, plums and mulberries, with hints of chocolate and dusty oak.

The palate is full bodied with lovely plum and blackberry following through from the nose. This wine is displaying quite amazing intensity of fruit. The fine tannins draw the flavors across the palate creating an incredible crescendo of flavors which remain in your mouth minutes after drinking.

This is an immaculately structured and seamless wine, one of the best produced at Leeuwin Estate.

Critical Acclaim

"A fragrant and vibrant wine, with pronounced cool climate characteristics; spicy, savoury nuances encircle the core of red cherry and plum fruit; very good handling of tannin and oak. Open-fermented, 20% whole bunches. Screwcap."
94 Points

"Glass-staining ruby. Sexy red berry compote and flowers on the nose, with complicating notes of dried herbs and black pepper. Silky in texture and refreshingly brisk, offering lively raspberry and blackberry flavors that gain power with air. Shows no rough edges and finishes with resonating spiciness and lingering floral and herbal notes. This is complex enough to drink now but there's no hurry."
91 Points

"In keeping with its Western Australian origins, this is a medium-bodied Shiraz, without the overbearing ripeness found from some other regions. Black cherry fruit is accented by hints of hints of mint or eucalyptus, while the tannins are silky and fine. Drink it now and over the next several years."
90 Points

"2007 Margaret River Art Series Shiraz A velvety Aussie shiraz, this wine cuts its unctuous richness with subtle spice and mineral acidity. It hints at the black-pepper drive syrah often gains in the Northern Rhône. Bottle age should bring that pepper and minerality to the fore."

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean. The climate is reminiscent of Bordeaux in some ways, leading many winemakers to plant grapes of that nature, such as Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. Other varieties that have found results are Chardonnay & Riesling.
