    I was stunned by the quality of this beautifully crafted Chardonnay. An intriguing bouquet of saffron, baking spice, lemon meringue and green apples hints at its nuance and complexity. On the palate, electrifying acidity enhances the aforementioned flavors, and while there is an underlying richness from the oak regimen, the emphasis is on freshness and balance. Superb craftsmanship.

    I still recall the first time I tried a Leeuwin Estate Artist Series Chardonnay. I was completely astonished at the incredible quality and complexity of the wine. The 2013 is spectacularly consistent with my original feelings. Lovely, classy and refined, but not at all lightweight. The rich body of this wine completely envelops the oak, which feels nutty and creamy. It has a dense apple fruit tinged with tangerine and lemon peel, that goes on and on - the finish is extremely long and laced with fine minerals. You would be forgiven for thinking of a modern Burgundy when tasting this wine, but truly it is all Margaret River from start to finish.
    Top Value!

    The reviews on this wine are phenomenal and for good reason. This Chardonnay from one our our top Aussie producers is energetic and dynamic, while remaining elegant and refined. The price on this Chard is lower than you'll find anywhere else and I will be taking advantage and picking up some of it for gifts and elegant dinner parties. It shows fantastic balance and nuance of flavors, with just a touch of oak and brioche flavors complimenting the stone fruit. Even if you are not familiar with the Leeuwin label, I encourage you to give it a try and don't think you'll be surprised that it stands up to any high end Chardonnay from California or Burgundy.
