Leeuwin Estate 2016 Art Series Riesling (12% abv) is new to the series which represents Leewin’s most “opulent and ageworthy wines” from each vintage. Australian artist John Olsen was chosen to create artwork for the Art Series Riesling labels. He created four works entitled Frogs in Riesling, and these now run consecutively across each vintage of Art Series Riesling. Tasting notes: “Lifted and bright with great clarity, the nose expresses cut limes and lemons. Subtle notes of kaffir lime leaf, lemongrass, jasmine and fresh sesame seed lie in the background. The finely structured palate has a delicate texture and shows flavours of lemon pith, lime and cardamom pod.”
