An iconic wine producer in Margaret River, Leeuwin made its way into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation for the 1980 Chardonnay Art Series in an international blind tasting. Since then, the family-owned estate, to which Robert Parker refers as “one of the benchmarks… a reference point winery in Margaret River”, has garnered numerous international acclaims. On three occasions it was placed in the company of world’s leading producers in the prestigious category of “International Winery of the Year” by the Wine & Spirits Magazine.

To begin the stellar Leeuwin Estate evening, Winemaker Lovett opens the lively, aromatic 92-point 2011 Riesling Art Series for a flourishing start with its freshness and minerality. Thereafter, the dining experience escalates to the award-winning 97-point 2009 Chardonnay Art Series as il Cielo Chef Omar Gabriele Bernardi serves up the delicate Beetroot Ocean Trout to compliment the creamy and crisp texture of the wine. Other highlights of the evening include the fresh and elegant 95-point 2008 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon rated by Decanter Magazine and 93-point 2008 Prelude Cabernet Merlot rated by Australian wine critic, James Halliday.
