LEEUWIN ESTATE ART SERIES CHARDONNAY 2016

Australia’s greatest white wine” – Ray Jordan, West Australian March 22, 2019

Leeuwin Estate is responsible for some of the greatest chardonnay made in Australia, under the Art Series label.  In fact, James Halliday has named the Leeuwin Estate Art Series chardonnay many times as his top chardonnay of the year, so naturally, the release of the 2016 vintage (a spectacular vintage in the region) was always going to be highly anticipated.

So when wine writer Ray Jordan submitted his review of it in the West Australian, on the morning of March 22 this year – ahead of the April 1st release - it caused quite a splash.  99+ plus points, his highest ever points for an Australian wine. 

“The combination of power, intensity, palate length and precision stamps it as something special. A little element of Puligny Chassagne, with more than a decent hit of Margaret River.” – Ray Jordan

He went on to say, “Leeuwin winemaker Tim Lovett described the vintage as “remarkable and spectacular” and a tribute to the underpinning contribution of the famous Blocks 20 and 22 that continue to lay the foundation for Art Series chardonnays”.

LEEUWIN ESTATE ART SERIES CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015

As if we needed any more convincing that the cabernets from south of the Margaret River township are every bit the quality match to those who call Wilyabrup home.  This cabernet, once again proves without question that Leeuwin are producing among Margaret River’s finest. 

97% cabernet sauvignon, 3% malbec

Littered with pure cassis, blackberry, blood plum and red currants, this is a supple, chewy and savoury cabernet that oozes understated class and refinement.  Most will say that this needs extra time in the cellar before drinking, and based on the evidence that shows how Margaret River cabernets age, then yes – this is a pertinent piece of advice.  BUT whip it into a decanter and enjoy it tonight – this is a very exciting, satisfying and wonderful wine.

LEEUWIN ESTATE ART SERIES SHIRAZ 2016

Undoubtedly the greatest shiraz from the Margaret River region, and one of my top cool climate shiraz in the country” – Erin Larkin

It’s peerless when it comes to MR Shiraz.  Silky, smooth, vibrant red fruit – absolutely masses of summer raspberry, blackcurrant and elegant tannins and acidity to match.  Utterly quenching, and utterly under-priced for the level of sheer class and enjoyment that it exudes, this is THE great bargain.
