Family owned, Leeuwin Estate, one of the five founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia, is under the direction of two generations who work with a team of highly skilled winemakers to consistently produce wines ranking alongside the world’s finest. In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to Denis and Tricia Horgan in the transformation of their cattle farm into Leeuwin Estate. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1981 “Art Series” Chardonnay.
Bright and fragrant with vitality and energy, cut limes feature with lycees and kiwifruit. Passionfruit blossom, frangipani and betel leaf are complementary in the background. Vibrant and concentrated palate with grapefruit, lime curd and custard apple at the forefront. Layered and textural mid palate leads to a thread of oyster shell and subtle oak spice, towards a talc like acid finish.
Country: Margaret River, Australia
Rating: 93 Points by James Suckling 
Tasting Note: "Beautifully fresh fruit aromas with lime and apple notes, leading to a palate that has a crisp, crunchy feel with attractive lemon and tropical-fruit flavors, tightly wrapped together. Drink now. Screw cap."
60年代末期,澳洲西部並不是個有名的葡萄酒產區,但Horgan夫婦得到了美國著名的釀酒師Robert Mondavi的寶貴建議,他認為,這裡是一塊極具潛力的釀酒天堂,一些知名品種,如Chardonnay、Cabernet Sauvignon、Shiraz和Pinot Noir等都可以在此獲得良好的發展。

在徵詢Robert Mondavi的意見之後,1973年時,Horgan夫婦便決定在澳洲西部的Margaret River產區成立自己的事業,陸文酒廠因而誕生。說到陸文酒莊崛起的關鍵人物,釀酒師Bob Cartwright可是功不可沒。從1978年到2005年之間擔任酒莊的首席釀酒師,成功幫助Horgan夫婦打造出陸文酒莊這個西澳著名葡萄酒品牌。雖然今天Bob已經退休,但接替他工作的Tim Lovett仍然保持Bob追求卓越的釀酒精神,替酒莊注入源源不絕的創造力。如今,陸文酒莊的葡萄酒已經行銷超過30個國家,並在Horgan家族的帶領下不斷的茁壯,將西澳的葡萄酒推向更高的層次。
Leeuwin酒莊發佈的三個標籤“藝廊系列/Art Series”、“葡萄園序曲/Prelude Vineyards”和“同胞/Siblings”。每個產品範圍內的葡萄酒,都具有不同特性狀況。Art Series每年都會委任著名的澳洲當代藝術家,針對每一款酒繪製酒標,以彰顯其高貴不凡的品質。多年來一直也是酒標藏家的心中摯愛。
