2012 Leeuwin Prelude Chardonnay

2012 Leeuwin Prelude Chardonnay

Australian Wine Companion 94pts: "Light straw-green; it is a tribute to the quality of the Art Series Chardonnay that this should be Leeuwin's entry point wine; there is a perfect balance between the grapefruit spectrum and the white peach spectrum, oak a near-invisible net holding the parts together, the length exceptional."


Wine Spectator 91pts: "Lively and inviting, with vibrant passion fruit and pineapple notes dancing against delicate spices. Finishes with intensity. Drink now through 2020."

Winemaker's Notes: "Cut limes, ripe nashi pears and white peaches greet the nose, amidst aromas of fresh nougat, honeycomb, brioche and rice wafers. Savory lemon rind, figs and quince create complexity, while oak derived toasted hazelnuts and cinnamon spice is diligently incorporated to enhance the balance. The palate is tight and defined, characterized by fresh lime, white nectarine and pears. Luscious texture delivers balanced depth and breadth to the palate. Oatmeal, nutmeg and subtle oak char lie in the background, with all components brought together with a taut and refreshing acid line."
