Description

This is a delicious wine! That won't last long...it's sure to sell out!

Just awarded 98 Points at Halliday's 2020 Wine Companion Awards. This already compliments Ray Jordan's 99.

And when we read Ray Jordan's review we were lost for words, so we thought we would simply share Perth's finest wine critic's words:

--

Leeuwin Estate is about to release what I believe is Australia’s greatest white wine, and the first I have given a score of 99-plus.

It is a game changer. And it has given me a problem. You see, I gave the 2015 Chardonnay 99 points, my highest score for an Australian white wine on release.

But the problem now is that the 2016 is a better wine. I don’t believe any wine has achieved perfection, but this one pushes it mighty close. So, all I can do is give it 99-plus.

For me, the 2016 Leeuwin is the closest thing, stylistically, to Burgundy — Grand Cru Burgundy — I have seen in an Australian chardonnay. 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.

Deciding to give it 99-plus wasn’t taken lightly. I was pretty sure after the first taste a few weeks ago, surer after sharing a bottle with friends and finally convinced after a third assessment, when I tasted it several times over 24 hours to see how it opened up.

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...."
