  • Wine Advocate, July 2023, Score: 98

    The 2020 vintage in Margaret River was moderate to warm and will be forever remembered for the incredibly compacted harvest period, which started two weeks earlier than the 2019 harvest before it and was all wrapped up by Easter—that's largely unheard of. The 2020 Art Series Chardonnay leads with power and density, not unlike the 2018 before it. Tight and green in the glass, you get salted pear, white peach, nectarine, red apple skins, preserved citrus and crushed shell. The wine has minerality and tension within the confines of the opulent fruit. Staggering length, as usual. The winemaking remains relatively consistent across the years: hand-picked fruit from Block 20 and 22 (planted in 1976 and 1978, respectively). Thirty percent of the cuvée was whole bunch pressed to 100% new Burgundian oak, while the balance was destemmed, crushed and pressed to 100% new Bordelais oak. Sulfured post-ferment in order to discourage malolactic fermentation, both components remain in barrel for 11 months. Super wine. Drink 2022-2047.

  • Matthew Jukes, September 2023, Score: 98

    This vintage is a triumph, with firm fruit surrounded by a rigid suit of armour that compresses its flanks and ratchets up the drama. This adds immeasurable length to the flavour without any diminuendo in power or persistence. The fruit is cradled with beautiful blonde oak and shot through with sublime pith and herb details allowing the flavours to transcend expectation. Drink 2024-2039.

Family-owned, Leeuwin Estate is one of Margaret River’s founding wineries and has been responsible for producing some of Australia’s finest wines for nearly 50 years. In 1980, inspired by the emblematic wines of Mouton Rothschild, Leeuwin Estate launched its own much-loved collection of super-premium labels, the ‘Art Series’. Representing the most opulent and age-worthy of all of Leeuwin’s stock, the ‘Art Series’ features magnificent artwork from contemporary Australian artists, carefully chosen each year by the family. Described by Vinous’ Josh Raynolds as ‘long-time collectibles…having developed a solid reputation for age-worthiness’, the Art Series is what makes the Leeuwin Estate one of the top names in Australia, and rightly so. If you haven’t tried these wines before then we urge you to put some in your cellar.Read less

Region

Margaret River

Certainly the best wine area in Western Australia, if not the whole country. The idyllic scenery of Margaret River (surf-lapped rocky coast, towering karri forest, abundant wildlife) has only been home to wine production since the 1970s. Hard to believe given the quality of the Chardonnays and Cabernets produced by the likes of Leeuwin, Cullen, Moss Wood and Vasse Felix. Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon all also thrive here. The climate is mild, tempered by the Indian Ocean and the drying wind known as the Freemantle Doctor, and infertile red loam soils are the most sought after for viticulture.
