  • Tasting notes
    The nose on the 2015 Chardonnay is phenomenally deep - first throwing pear, lime and peach before nougat and brioche enter. Savoury flint and wet stone gently round the back of the bouquet, inviting the first sip. The palate is just as tight and complex as the nose suggests; layers of citrus are woven through a distinctive mineral thread, all supported by delicate oak.

Ray Jordan

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.'
