Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Aromatically tight but expansive and expressive in the mouth pouring out its pear green guava and fig flavors in a generous stream with glints of spice. Comes together smoothly on a deftly balanced frame to let the finish sail on and on. Drink now through 2030. From Australia.

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.

The 2010 Art Series Chardonnay is redolent of warm peaches toasted almonds and apple tart with hints of cedar and wet pebbles. Medium to full-bodied and very concentrated with layers of stone fruit toast and nut flavors it has a lively backbone of acidity satiny texture and long finish. Approachable now it will drink to 2019+. 95+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
