External Reviews for Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series
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.
