Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Regarded as the finest white wine to come out of Australia and definitely the best Chardonnay - this icon and heroic wine has critics across the globe raving about it. The following note comes from Matthew Jukes, arguably the best New World wine critic in the UK. "2006 Art Series is one of the very greatest vintages of one of Australia's top Chardonnays ever made. On a world scale, this is as good as Chardonnay ever gets anywhere outside of Burgundy. It strikes the quintessential balance between control and concentration, power and finesse. Its length is so heroic that minutes later nothing has changed the slightest bit in the mouth. As far as 'art labels' go, we would prefer this to a bottle of Mouton-Rothschild."

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.

One of Australia's benchmark Chardonnays continues its roll, offering up opulent scents of vanilla, peach and mango. Tropical fruit and toasty oak flavors are easily carried by a lush, full-bodied delivery system that seems to unfold kaleidoscopicall... Wine Enthusiast. A Chardonnay wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2007 Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Art Series 750ml

2007 Margaret River Art Series Chardonnay The platinum color and fine pear-like scent show the restraint in this chardonnay. Oak dominates the flavors for now with cinnamon and caramel notes that last in the finish. But the core of the wine-juicy pear nectarine and loquat-has a freshness that will turn that oak toward minerality with bottle age. Hints of it are already there. Wine & Spirits.
