Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series 2003

Member Review by lhsyd:

Buttery nose. Medium length. Highly intense aroma, albeit not the complexity of the 2001. Great Chardy!

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.

Wine Review Online ReviewIf you love Chardonnay, you owe it to yourself to discover why this amazingly complex wine ranks among the world's best. Its minerality is reminiscent of great Burgundy but is complemented with opulent, ripe fruit flavors.Wine Tasting NotesThe color is bright straw with lime green hues. The fresh nose is typical Leeuwin, with lifted aromas of dried pear and ripe peach accompanied by hints of cashews and integrated French oak. These flavors combine into a finely balanced bouquet; the result of very low yielding vines matched with subtle winemaking to preserve the richness of the fruit. The palate displays the mouth filling and intense flavors of dried pears with the middle palate showing richness from both the fruit and the lees stirring. The length, always a feature of Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay, is long and full flavored with a lingering fresh citrus finish. The new French oak complements the fruit providing a wonderful balance of warm toasty flavors on the finish.
