Leeuwin Estate Art Series Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The use of oak is apparent here from the outset, and gee I like it.

Fifty percent was fermented in French oak barrels and then left for four months to relax. Interestingly only 30% was used in the 2013. Regardless, the result is a nicely textured wine which enables the fruit to dance.

Tempered tropical fruit with a subtle underlying creaminess kicks things off. The use of oak has ensured the palate coated well also adding depth. Pineapple, citrus and snow pea float on through. There's even some spice. A fantastic length wraps up a package is which is oh so impressive.

Rip in.

Very good+
