|When to drink|
2020 was another outstanding vintage in Margaret River, producing one of Leeuwin’s most powerful and fruit-concentrated Shirazes to date.
An abundance of dark cherries, blueberries, mulberries and currants surround the nose with heightened floral notes of violets and lavender. Beneath there lies subtle spice notes of black cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise. Gentle layering of cedar, black pepper, and chalk is threaded within. An energetic palate with bright and fresh acidity is the backbone weaving within concentrated boysenberries, cherries and currants. There is dimension and capacity through the mid palate, leading to structural silky tannins that linger on the long finish. 13.5% alcohol.
“Aromas of pitted cherries, grilled herbs, verturned earth and whole nutmeg. Medium- to full-bodied with structured, sturdy tannins. Fresh acidity lifts up the savory fruit and sweet spice. Very good intensity and depth here. A bit of chew at the finish.” 94/100pts James Suckling
