Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2014

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    14%

98 Points - James Halliday

Since it's first commercial vintage back in 1979, Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay has taken all before it and is now recognised as a benchmark Chardonnay on the international stage. Recently named as #1 in Wine Searcher's list of The 10 Most Wanted Chardonnays, the demand for this wine seemingly increases with each release.

The 2014 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay is once again Australian Chardonnay at its very best; drinking superbly now it has the structure to last for at least the next decade. Stocks of this year's release are very limited and are sure to again sell out quickly.

"98 Points. 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. Screwcap 13.5% alc. To 2029. $95" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2018.

"96 Points. 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.

Grapes/Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Aroma: A pristine and lifted nose highlighted by Nashi pears, limes, white peach and fig. The primary fruits are complimented by nutmeg, cinnamon, almonds and sesame that creates subtle complexity.

Palate: The palate has concentration with clarity and purity. An introduction of grapefruit and pear lead to a delicately textured, layered and woven palate with nougat, anise and cashews present. There is immense length that finishes with a fine acid line and mineral finish.
