Bright straw green in colour. The 2015 Riesling exhibits concentrated aromas of citrus blossom, sweet spice, musk and subtle perfume of golden delicious apples.

The palate reveals incredible freshness with soft lingering flavours of freshly cut Australian finger limes, crisp granny smith and jasmine spice which are balanced and fine, the delicate natural acidity drives the pallet into a persistent mineral finish.

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2022)
The 2022 Art Series Riesling leads with fleshy lime and green apple skins. There is always a presence of galangal/coriander/loquat, and that remains consistent this vintage. Tight and focused despite the warmer vintage, judicious picking has produced a wine that is interestingly lean, as well as fleshy. That's a combination of the vintage, the region and the expression of the variety here in Margaret River. The phenolics are savory and curve through the fruit through the finish, keeping the wine tight and focused. Healthy canopies in the vineyard help to shade the fruit, retain natural acidity and promote the purity of fruit flavors in the finished wine. This is one of the very few Riesling vineyards in Margaret River, and it's consistently expressive. 

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2022)
Inviting aromas of fleshy peaches, apricots, white tea and subtle spice. Medium-bodied with silky texture. Subtle and nuanced with the nose continuing and expanding on the palate before gently trailing off at the finish. Minerals come out at the end

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2021)
Not commonly found in this region, Leeuwin’s location towards the southern end of Margaret River means it can craft deliciously delicate and fruity Riesling. This vintage is distinctively Aussie in style, with lime Popsicle and orchard blossoms. It’s bright and slender, sliced through the middle by a zingy line of citrusy acidity. Dry yet still mouthwatering, with a lingering limey finish, this is an easy drop on its own or with a number of summer seafood and green veg dishes. Editors’ Choice.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2021)
Offers an appealing mix of savory details of sea salt, lanolin and beeswax, with a fruit-forward core of yuzu, lime and apple flavors on a mouthwatering frame. Drink now.

James Halliday (JH) : 91 Points (2016)
Every year this wine sells out long before any of the other wines in Leeuwin Estate's portfolio, clearly it's not broken, and there is no suggestion it needs fixing. It has lemon/lime citrus fruit, and the acidity doesn't leave any mark. On the other side, its flavour is given by the fruit, residual sugar doesn't play any part.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 92 Points (2015)
Green-tinged straw. High-pitched citrus zest and floral aromas carry a smoky mineral overtone and a background hint of quinine. Vibrant, dry and focused on the palate, offering intense lime and green apple flavors that deepen and become juicier with air. Shows impressive tension and a bright mineral character on the incisive finish, which leaves behind bitter citrus pith and honeysuckle notes. -- Josh Raynolds
