Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay 2013

We all need sophisticated friends like this Chardy. Damn it's fine.

I had the pleasure of looking at it over a few days and it evolved beautifully.

Fresh peach, cashews and vanilla get the senses excited. Plenty of creamy oak on first taste but that settles with time. Citrusy and flinty, the longer I left it the more the fruit just powered on. It's biscuity/brioche like late. Terrific balance and weight. I just wanted more but it's best drinking is still ahead of it.

Will cellar long term.

Excellent.
