98 points "#24 in 100 top 2004 wines. This white from proprietor Dennis Horgan's 2001 Art series, earned the highest score we've ever awarded to a aussie Chardonnay. Leeuwin Estate has a total of 62 acres of Chardonnay, divided into eight district parcels. Block 20, with vines more than 25 years old situated on the lower slopes of one of the rolling gravelly hills, is always the backbone of the Art Series. 500 cases imported."

92 points "Fresh, aromatic nose combines grapefruit, flowers and clove; more precise than the 2000. Juicy and bright in the mouth; more youthful and gripping than the 2000, if not quite as harmonious today. But this structured, very long, minerally chardonnay ultimately possesses richer fruit. Incidentally, owner Dennis Horgan told me that his greatest vintages of the past couple of decades for his world-class Art Series chardonnay have been '97, '95 and '87."
