    Winemaker's Notes:

    A wine of brilliant clarity. Color is a very pale straw with green tinges. The nose shows lifted aromas of citrus blossom, honeysuckle, and lime mixed with a mineral edge, which are indicators of an excellent wine. Displaying classic Riesling flavors of lemon and lime, the palate enjoys great intensity and depth of flavor. The exceptional length finishes with a clean and crisp acidity. This style of wine particularly lends itself to be enjoyed with freshly shucked oysters and Asian dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright straw-green; fresh, crisp, bright and lively; citrus and mineral flavours with good length; the best-seller in the Leeuwin stable. Screwcap.

    The light straw-colored 2006 Riesling “Art Series” exhibits a bouquet of mineral, spring flowers, and lemon-lime. This leads to a dry, crisp wine with plenty of citrus fruit, ripe flavors, excellent concentration, and a lengthy finish. Although it can be enjoyed now, particularly with raw bar, it will evolve for up to a decade in the manner of a top Mosel Riesling.

    Light straw. Strong citrus and spice aromas are complicated by jasmine and mint. Strikingly fresh, with vivid tangerine and pear flavors, chewy texture and a long, penetrating finish. A dry, clean, refreshing riesling, in a typical style for Leeuwin.
