Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay, Ripe golden pear skin, peach, savoury toasted ground almonds and white nectarine.
“96 points – A deftly balanced Chardonnay of tremendous depth without much weight, floating its pear, quince, floral and orange marmalade flavors through to the end. It’s the finish that makes this special, balancing all the elements effortlessly and lingering on and on. Drink now through 2025.”
Harvey Steinman, Wine Spectator, March 2012
“97 points – So complex and so damn good. From the first intake of those heady aromas of grapefruit, cereal and subtle roasted cashew. There’s some subtle spice in there as well. The palate is a simply glorious expression of the variety with a deep intensity and power that carries with effortless precision to a very long finish. Another great wine with an underlying tightness that will see it age for many years.” Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2012
…”is joyously giving. Lush with flavors of citrus, star fruit and pear, the wine reveals undercurrents of lemon curd and fresh ginger beneath its cool acidity.” Robb Report’s 2012 Best of the Best Selections
