Museum Release Art Series Chardonnay

Museum Release Art Series Chardonnay

2012 Chardonnay, Margaret River, Western Australia

Out of Stock

Grapefruit, pear, nougat, brioche, cinnamon & graphite. Wine with incredible poise and presence, with a long life ahead.



"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."

"If price wasn't a concern we'd all just want to drink bucket loads of this. It's all class and quality but the drinkability factor is extremely high. It's like sitting with someone expert in the art of conversation; it makes you laugh and cry and lean in closer. Fruit, oak, texture, acidity, length: a hand full of aces, neatly arranged, trim and terrific."

James Halliday Wine Companion 2016 Edition
"From the first sniff of the marvelous mix of nougat and grapefruit, with sub-tle infusions of white peach, you just know this is something special. It is a more fruit-driven wine than the 2011, with a beautifully integrated palate striking such a perfect balance of oak and fruit. It’s finer, with an effortlessness about it, but with a depth and power that extends through to the very long finish. This is a wine that will live for many years.”

“Leeuwin Estate’s '12 chardonnay is one of the finest to date – more restrained style yet loads of flavour, complexity & depth.”
Jane Faulkner, Winematters
the power one associates with Leeuwin – with the 100% new oak being totally absorbed by the fruit – while the palate is textured, balanced and extremely long."

"A wine with amazing richness and depth. So much apple pie character yet minerally underneath. Full body, so much length. Gorgeous."
