2001 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay
Number 24 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004! Lifted intensity of the typical aromas of pears, the scent of dried figs, together with hints of spice and nutmeg, fragrant and sweet submerging any hint of oak. The palate has length of flavor with flowing layers of fruit finishing strong and mouth filling. There is classical sweet malt on the finish with a perceptible flavor of subtle French oak lingering on. This is a very harmonious wine with good ageing potential.
