I was particularly impressed by the wines labelled Shiraz. From my perspective, I think these very fine wines should be labelled Syrah, to signal just how different they are from typical South Australian Shiraz… This variety clearly has a brilliant future at Leeuwin.

Jancis Robinson,

Leeuwin Estate makes one of Australia’s great Bordeaux-styled Cabernets in the Margaret River area…

Leeuwin Estate 2014 Art Series Chardonnay

Incredibly youthful quartz-green colour; a great chardonnay, its intensity and length right up there with the best prior vintages; white peach and nectarine open the batting, pink grapefruit coming swiftly thereafter, creamy/nutty oak almost lost in the crowd. if this weren’t enough, the aftertaste is a work of art, complete in itself.

20/20, 2014 Art Series Chardonnay
… 2014 Art Series Chardonnay is my favourite release in a very long time and having given it 19.5s more regularly than I can count it is time for me to unleash a perfect 20/20 for this masterpiece. It is not only the top scoring white wine of this Report, it is the top wine of all.

Leeuwin Estate 2013 Art Series Chardonnay

Supremely elegant and finely balanced, and has absorbed the new oak in a manner worthy of a Grand Cru White Burgundy, leaving the fragrant bouquet and finely structured palate of startling length to occupy centre stage.

98 Points, Leeuwin Estate 2012 Art Series Chardonnay.
A very youthful bright green-quartz colour sets the scene for a riveting wine of exquisite purity and finesse. It almost floats in the mouth, so effortless is its invocation of all things Chardonnay: white flowers, white stone fruits and immaculately balanced acidity. Oak? Well, yes it’s there, but rendered mute by the fruit. Has greater staying power than any other Australian chardonnay.

…Leeuwin Estate, one of the benchmarks, if not the reference point winery in Margaret River.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, October 2003


The Art Series Chardonnay is, in my opinion, Australia’s finest example based on the wines of the last 30 vintages.

For long regarded as one of the very greatest producers of chardonnay in the Margaret River, and indeed the whole of Australia; this is one of the proudest family-owned estates in the country.
