SINGAPORE - Wine enthusiasts and fans of Australian wines can look forward to a special dinner featuring top-rated wines from the famous Leeuwin Estate presented by Winemaker Tim Lovett and Hilton Singapore sommelier Stephanie Rigourd on Thursday 31 October 2013. The wine dinner will be held in il Cielo, the award-winning Italian restaurant and bar of the hotel.

An iconic wine producer in Margaret River, Leeuwin made its way into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation for the 1980 Chardonnay Art Series in an international blind tasting. Since then, the family-owned estate, to which Robert Parker refers as "one of the benchmarks... a reference point winery in Margaret River", has garnered numerous international acclaims. On three occasions it was placed in the company of world's leading producers in the prestigious category of "International Winery of the Year" by the Wine & Spirits Magazine.

To begin the stellar Leeuwin Estate evening, Winemaker Lovett opens the lively, aromatic 92-point 2011 Riesling Art Series for a flourishing start with its freshness and minerality. Thereafter, the dining experience escalates to the award-winning 97-point 2009 Chardonnay Art Series as il Cielo Chef Omar Gabriele Bernardi serves up the delicate Beetroot Ocean Trout to compliment the creamy and crisp texture of the wine. Other highlights of the evening include the fresh and elegant 95-point 2008 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon rated by Decanter Magazine and 93-point 2008 Prelude Cabernet Merlot rated by Australian wine critic, James Halliday.

About Leeuwin Estate
With great foresight by the legendary American winemaker - Robert Mondavi in 1972, Leeuwin was blessed with an isolated and pristine natural environment surrounded by oceans on three sides of the island. Under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan together with Robert Mondavi, Leeuwin was cultivated and nurtured within a five-year period from 1975 and thrust into the international spotlight in 1979 when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 Art Series Chardonnay in an international blind tasting.

Boasting as one of the most modern wineries in the Southern hemisphere, Leeuwin offers its team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers with all the advantages of new age technology. Emphasizing on quality, Leeuwin stands by its belief to achieve complexity, balance and longevity of its wines through an immaculate blend of modern and traditional methods, rising as one of the most dynamic and innovative wine tourism industries in the world. Enjoying a microclimate with changing water temperature by 2 degrees between seasons protect from fluctuating temperatures and greater latitude in the ripening of fruits.

Over the years, they remained as an iconic producer of premium wines in Margaret River with four international acclaimed labels - the Art Series, Prelude Vineyards and Siblings.
