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. 92(+?) points

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.
