Leeuwin Estate of Margaret River is one of Australia's leading Chardonnay makers with their Art Series Chardonnay widely considered the greatest white wine made in the country. The 2019 Leeuwin Prelude Chardonnay again delivers a top class Margaret River Chardonnay with the purity, finesse and length of flavour we've come to expect from Leeuwin Estate.
Aromatic and expressive nose with notes of pear, lemon, grapefruit, nougat and a touch of brioche complexity. The palate is intense and concentrated with plenty of white nectarine, pear and lemon underpinned by subtle toasted hazelnuts and a sherbet-like acid thread. Another ripping example of Prelude Chardonnay, this delivers extraordinary value-for-money drinking.
"Leeuwin. It’s one of those words that feels textural as you say it. This release is a hit. It’s quite fine, almost cool, with citrussy, brine-like acidity running through and a distinct freshness to its feel. The word mouthwatering is apt. Nectarine, almond milk and a run of grilled peach, though that light/nutty/almond-like creaminess is a key feature. Needless to say, it drinks a treat. It’s not big or overly powerful but there’s more than enough here to satisfying and its length is good too. 92 Points Tasted: Feb21 13.5% alc. $34 Screwcap" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
