Ray Jordan is king of the WA Wine scene. He's being writing about wine for 40 years and each year he has produces his Western Australian Wine Guide.  This year he tasted nearly 650 Australian red wines that sell for $40 or less.

The wine crowned Best Red Under $40 was Leeuwin Estate Art Series Shiraz 2016.


Now I'll let Ray do the talking, here's what he published:


"The competition for best wine of the tasting was hot. As hot as any previous year... But in the end I decided on the remarkable Leeuwin Art Series shiraz. This is the culmination of Leeuwin's focus on its reds. And in many ways it is a breakthrough in style, delivering its payload with such deft touch... This is clearly one of the finest shiraz from Leeuwin, displaying complexity at another level." 

"It's an interesting combination of predominantly shiraz plus 5 per cent malbec and one per cent viognier. Aromas are quite beautiful with cherry scents and a touch of floral apricot pith. The energy and lift in the palate appear to have been the result of 20 per cent whole bunch use. This is clearly one of the finest shiraz  from Leeuwin, displaying complexity at another level. A hint of cracked pepper and licorice add to the complexity. Outstanding. 96/100."  Ray Jordan, Top 100 Reds 2019
