Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series 1998
Winemaker's Tasting Notes A cooler than normal year with ideal growing conditions for Chardonnay resulting in relatively good yields and stronger flavours. Vibrant straw green in colour. This is pristine Margaret River chardonnay; the classic aroma of pears, both dried and fresh, lifting strongly over the basic strata of minerals and spice on the powerful nose. It has a lovely delicate and flowing palate of medium weight fruit but also with intensity showing. The finish is full and the flavour of pears lingers in the mouth. A roasted sweet nutty aftertaste is evident long after the wine is swallowed. Excellent with crustaceans and fish.
