Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

After an extensive search in 1972 to identify the most suitable Australian area for the production of premium varietal wines, Robert Mondavi singled out a small plot of land in the Margaret River region. At the time a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved under the direction of owners Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. The Estate was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter magazine awarded their highest recommendation to the 1980 Art Series Chardonnay. Now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, the Estate is recognized as one of Australia’s leading wine producers and wine tourism pioneers. Featured three times in the prestigious category of “International Winery of the Year” by U.S. Wine & Spirits magazine, Leeuwin Estate wines nconsistently rank alongside the world’s finest.
