The Wine: Leeuwin Estate ‘Prelude’ Chardonnay

The Prelude Chardonnay has lifted and fragrant with an abundance of white nectarines, lime curd, Nashi pears and baby peaches. Heightened with notes of jasmine, lemon blossom and camomile tea leaves. Nuances of cashews, blanched almonds and rice wafers combine with brioche and mealy notes lying beneath.

The palate is bright with great concentration, purity and clarity, whilst maintaining focus and definition. An introduction of grapefruit, lemon wedges and pear lead to a delicately textured, layered and woven palate with a creamy, baked apple and brioche feature with diligent oak and subtle texture.

The layered and contoured mid palate is finely checked with mineral acid thread.

The Winery

Family owned, Leeuwin Estate, one of the five founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia, is under the direction of two generations who work with a team of highly skilled winemakers to consistently produce wines ranking alongside the world’s finest.

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine. Enjoying its first commercial vintage in 1979, Leeuwin was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1981 “Art Series” Chardonnay.

The international accolades have continued and Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets. Celebrating fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin features an award winning restaurant and cellar door. The Estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.
