Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2015
"I have over the years tasted every Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay and I rate the 2015 the greatest. It is the first white wine I have awarded 99 points." Ray Jordan
Pears, limes and white peach defines the nose amidst sweeter notes of nougat, sesame brittle and brioche. The tightly directed palate boasts yet enviable length and woven layers of lemon curd, lime and grapefruit pith with a distinctive mineral thread. Delicate oak use presents gentle complexing notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and hazelnuts.

2015 vintage - I have over the years tasted every Leeuwin Art Series chardonnay and I rate the 2015 the greatest. It is the first white wine I have awarded 99 points.' 'More superlatives have been heaped on this great wine than any other Margaret River white. Another stunning wine showing an impressive refinement and subtle expression, while retaining the power that is its DNA. There is a purity, yet layered complexity. All inoculated yeasts and then barrel fermented in new French oak, with regular lees stirring. Has a crunchy lemony zip and grapefruit influence on the finish. Really long palate that effortlessly strikes out a tight and minerally finish. Deep, intense generosity. Cut lime and pear, with some nectarine characters and subtle fragrant jasmine. Has a tension and energy here. Cooler vintage similar to 2014. Oyster shell graphite.'
