Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay 2008
Margaret River
Exceptional Langtons Classification. Great wines are born in great vineyards. At Leeuwin the viticulturist and winemaker work hand in hand throughout the winemaking process. Variations and deficiencies in the individual blocks have not been completely corrected so that the wine reflects the soil. Block 20 forms the backbone of Art Series. The young wine begins with true varietal power of great delicacy which requires up to twelve months lees contact in new French oak to draw out the complexity, losing none of that essential balance in the process.

One of Australia's baronial labels, the site of Leeuwin Estate was identified by legendary American winemaker Robert Mondavi in 1973, midway between Cape naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. There are sixty two acres of Chardonnay vines divided into eight distinct parcels.

Since the 1980 vintage Leeuwin Estate has adhered to vertical training and leaf removal to present the Chardonnay fruit properly to the light. The soil management has remained the same since inception. Each plot is harvested separately and kept separate throughout the winemaking and some of the maturation programme.

The granitic island where Leeuwin vineyard is located, has weathered over millions of years and provides ancient free draining gravel soils, which are highly complementary to the culture of the vine, as well as promoting great finesse in the wine.

With oceans on three sides, fluctuating water temperature by two degrees between summer and winter, the district has its own microclimate.

An average year in Margaret River equates to vintages Bordeaux can enjoy only occasionally.
