Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay Margaret River Prelude 2006
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."
