- Cellar 3 - 4 years (2007-2008)
- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
2001 was an ideal vintage in Margaret River - the cool conditions resulting in chardonnay with great depth of flavour. The wine was barrel fermented for 11 months using a variety of new French oak at medium toast with the lees stirred regularly.
An outstanding wine. Bright straw colour. Complex nose with beautifully integrated layers of cashews, biscuit, hazelnut, toasted oak and yeast lees. The palate is mouthfilling, with layers of hazelnut, mixed spices, brazil nut, cashews and almonds overlaid by a manzanilla like flor yeast character. Outstanding length and persistence. Perfect balance, with very long aftertaste of flor yeast, hazelnut and biscuit.
Cellar 3-4 years (2007-2008)
Classis Leeuwin, classic Margaret River; intense stone fruit and grapefruit aromas, then a gloriously textured and multi-faced palate; outstanding balance and length.

'James Halliday - 2005 Australian Wine Companion'
The 2001 Chardonnay Art Series does not quite measure up to its brilliant 2000 counterpart (one of the finest Australian Chardonnays I have ever tasted), but it is an impressively endowed, medium to full-bodied effort offering aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, pears, and background oak. This elegant, layered Chardonnay is buttressed by well-integrated acidity. It should drink well for 5-6 years.
