Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2013

Barrel ferment clearly evident here: toasty, vanillin and a little creamy cashew. Lots of oak on show - but simply oozes class.

Toast, flinty mineral, lime and honey. A wine of substance and power, and yet at the same time offers restraint. There's spice derived flavour a-plenty here - yet you wouldn't say it's spicy. 

Poised, balanced, you feel it's primed, ready to unleash itself onto the unsuspecting. Exemplary. 96
