Description

Nothing short of a legendary Australian wine, Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay was the first Chardonnay to catapult onto the world stage when the 1980 took Decanter Magazine's #1 Chardonnay in the world for 1982. 30+ years on and the wine is infinitely better and more refined, offering exceptional value on a global scale.

Smells

Faraway gunsmoke and flint, with toasty, mealy notes and brioche, biscuit and peach.

Tastes

The palate is sheer elegance, highly concentrated and complex and yet without a trace of heaviness or burliness. Beautiful smoky flavours fill the palate, making the mouth water and crave a salty piece of chicken breast to complement it. 2012 was yet another dream vintage for Margaret River and this Chardonnay shows it, practically faultless in its application. Enjoy young on its release at 4 years old or cellar 3-12 more years to experience its true potential.
