    Langton's 'Exceptional' Classification (VII 2018)

    Few stories can be told about modern Australian wine without mentioning the amazing rise of Margaret River, and Leeuwin Estate as a pioneer. Founded by Denis and Tricia Horgan in 1979, it is the star estate of Margaret River’s southern area; with a particular pedigree in its famed Chardonnay, but also relatively recent acclaim for Cabernet and Shiraz.

    Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay 2017

    Chardonnay of the Year Varietal Winner

    This achieves another step up the quality ladder for Leeuwin Estate, seemingly impossible. There's been no change in the vinification, nor in the vineyard. The change is an increase in the intensity of the flavours, and hence their length and aftertaste. It's an extraordinary wine, among the greatest of Burgundy (and elsewhere in the world). Whatever you expect from its future development will be delivered.

    Light yellow, a very youthful colour. The bouquet has substantial oak as well as some tropical fruit, cashew nut and fluffy yeast aromas. The palate is very intense and vibrant, with nervy acidity and richness to match, the aftertaste lingering on and on. A power-packed wine that is compact and tightly-packaged, latent like an unexploded bomb! Intense and sustained grapefruit and lemon aftertaste. An impressive, high-impact chardonnay of great potential. The sheer power of the fruit is awesome.

    Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2017

    A wine of pristine qualities shwoing a minerally, talcy acid purity that cuts deep into the hallmark power and intensity. There’s a little phenolic grip on the back palate. It’s very much a product of the cooler 2017 vintage and is a wine that really needs a lot more time to reveal its best. I love the slightly graphite edge which contributes to its shape and lancing length.

    Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2017

    Sometimes you just have to lean back and marvel. The art of Margaret River chardonnay. This is it. You don’t just drink a wine like this, you set it in your mind as a benchmark. It’s a wine built on power, texture and length, centre-half forward, centre-half back and ruck, with acidity roving through and fragrance cheering loud. That seduction up front, that pure fresh peach, that huge energetic push through the back half. Blimey Charlie the crushed fennel characters here are full on. It’s the frisky side of luxury. It’s damn good.

    Such complexity and resolve make for a very attractive nose with peaches, grapefruit, cedary oak spice, gunflint and wet stones. The palate has a plush, smoothly resolved texture with a rich, creamy texture and all-encompassing, ripe stone-fruit flavors, ahead of a very long, smooth finish. Grilled-hazelnut and apricot-kernel flavors to close. Great to drink now, but certainly a decade of cellaring in the tank, too. Screw cap.

    This felt fancy and impressive from the very first moment it hit the glass. Bright, limey, tight and finely wrought, power and structure in spades with incredible velocity and tension in the palate. It is a wine of pedigree and distinction. Delicious too; a rolling feast of fresh fruit, savoury notes, florals, oak and quiet minerality. Yes, thank you. Rolls Royce chardonnay.
