    Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay - 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.

Press Review

    Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2014

    Best Chardonnay, Qantas epiQure Halliday Wine Companion Award 2018

    Part hand, part machine-picked, part wild and part cultured yeast, matured for 11 months in new French oak. Incredibly youthful quartz-green colour; a great chardonnay, its intensity and length right up there with the best prior vintages; white peach and nectarine open the batting, pink grapefruit coming swiftly thereafter, creamy/nutty oak almost lost in the crowd. If this weren't enough, the aftertaste is a work of art, complete in itself.

    There have been many challengers to this great chardonnay, yet still it stands supreme as one of the finest in the land. This is a finer and more delicate example but one that still has the sustained power and deep intensity that distinguishes it. Pear and white peach aromas laced with a light touch of almond meal and grapefruit. Appears slightly more minerally and precise than some previous wines. Holds a very tight line through to the finish. Interesting style shift.

    Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2014

    Tasted alongside the 2015 Giaconda Chardonnay, two of the big boys of Australian Chardonnay. Very interesting. It’s thick with spicy cedar oak, yes, but you taste and swallow, and the length of flavour is just staggering. Oak, fruit power, and length is the Leeuwin formula, with bottle age the key to unlocking it. As at now there’s clove spice, ginger and cedar oak, nashi pear, Tiny Teddies, melon and white flowers. It’s full bodied, spicy and smooth, intense and quite flinty, with cool integrated acidity, and a startlingly long finish. Very much a classic Leeuwin here. Perhaps one of their best.

    Always a treasure. Always on point. A sublime expression. Chardonnay walking tall with poise. Although the oak is on the heavier side, the fruit refuses to be outdone. Struck match, hints of Jersey caramel, vanillin and almond meal rise up. Delicate white stone fruits and fig, a deft touch of citrus and a classic grapefruit acidity add polish. Slight ginger like spice shimmers through to a moreish and long finish. Length for days. A faultless balance of fruit, oak and acid from gate to post. Savour every drop. Drink now to ten years+.

    This understated Leeuwin chardonnay continues the trend towards a finer, more discreet style. Grapefruit, melon and smoky oak aromas, the palate intense yet restrained and refined, finishing dry and long. It combines tension and refinement with power.

    Beautifully nutty, toasty and savoury on the resplendent nose. The palate is textured and savoury with an amazing concentration of rich fruit with abundant balancing citrus acidity. Flavour builds on palate - amazing intensity. Won't struggle to find admirers.

    Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2014

    Aromas of cooked apple, pineapple and pear with hints of honeysuckle. Full body, fantastic depth of fruit and intensity. Tight and muscular. Reserved. Powerful. Screw cap. Give it a year or two still but a joy to taste.
