Description

Art Series is Leeuwin Estate's pinnacle Chardonnay with 2017 being the 41st vintage and a recent recipient of 98/100 from well-known Aussie wine critic Huon Hooke. Aged vines, possibly the world’s most consistent climate, uncompromising viticulture and winemaking. A pedigree of aging, this wine could well go beyond 30-years sealed under screwcap... providing you cellar it professionally. I recommend buying a few bottles of this hedonistic Chardonnay to savour over the next 10-30 years if well stored.

Smells

Elegant floral aromas with peach, pear, flint, brioche, nougat and seductive nuttiness.

Tastes

Reminiscent of the greatest white Burgundies, very Batard-Montrachet as it explodes across the palate unleashing its powerful concentration and creamy layers of texture whilst retaining its poise. Artful in every sense of the word, it will magnify in complexity over 1-3 decades. Right now, lemon curd, fresh lime, white peach and grapefruit skin are infused with subtle oak complexities of cinnamon, nutmeg and hazelnuts… a window to its stunning tenure ahead in the bottle, as is its unerring length. Create your most hedonistic seafood or poultry dish to do it justice.
