Tasting Notes

95 points Wine Spectator: "Round, generous and amazingly fresh, with a juicy hint of grapefruit playing against spicy pear, green guava and mint aromas and flavors that expand and persist onto the long, expressive finish. This just doesn't quit, remaining exquisitely balanced. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases imported." 97 points James Halliday: "This Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay, and saints be praised, under screwcap, has awesome power, grace, and finesse, pure grapefruit, nectarine and peach-flesh aromas, framed by touches of toasty grilled nuts, leading into an exceptionally concentrated palate that nonetheless has a lightness that is beguiling and incredibly long." 94 points Stephen Tanzer's IWC: "Deep, bright gold. A complex bouquet offers ripe, smoky tangerine, candied ginger, honey, anise and nutmeg. Weighty orchard fruit flavors firm up with air, taking on candied lemon, lime and pear skin character. The spiciness builds and carries into an impressively broad, clinging finish. Leaves vibrant citrus and mineral notes behind, eventually. Recently tasted bottles of this wine going back to the 1987 showed no sign of decline, and in fact were almost shockingly youthful." 93 points and one of the Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2009.
