99 Points - Ray Jordan
For several decades, Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay has been recognised as a benchmark Australian Chardonnay; a reputation that is seemingly enhanced with each release.
The 2020 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay is again Margaret River Chardonnay at its very best and our limited stocks are sure to be snapped up quickly. As always this displays a subtle almost effortless power, with intense flavours of pear, nectarine, lime, and hazelnut supported by elegant oak, spice and layers of brioche. A wine of stunning balance and supreme length, this will offer plenty of joy over the coming decade or two.
"99 Points. It would not surprise me if this was considered the greatest Leeuwin chardonnay yet. You would get no argument from me... there is elegance and power here. Subtle layered wine. It was a year of great concentration and power. Has pear and lime character that is part of the DNA. The fruit is generous, especially about the mid palate. Has a subtle and not overstated flinty character with a lift of spice. The oak is brilliantly managed and complementary. It's very tight and precise and the whole-bunch technique gives it that stalky, phenolics character. There's a savoury almond meal character on the finish. Incredible length and power here. The minerally character on the finish is quite pronounced. In the top three, certainly, of any Leeuwin chardonnay." - Ray Jordan, Business News, 27 February 2023.
"97 Points. Pale lemon yellow. White nectarine, sea spray, roast hazelnut, and crushed sage aromatics. Palate fills with an intensity and power that makes you immediately sit up and focus. There's a ripeness of fruit but with the saline minerality, touch of struck flint and layers upon layers of delicate oak spices it never stops offering more facets of its brilliance. Line, length and drive all harmonise to the never-ending finish."- Stuart Knox, The Real Review, 8 January 2023.
