Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay - 750ml
Leeuwin's Art Series Chardonnay tends to take centre stage, but this Prelude is a cracker as a wine of finesse and balance modestly carrying all the hallmarks of the variety and the region.
The nose is vibrant and concentrated with aromas of pear, hand-picked peach and lime, and layers of lemon curd and fig beneath. The palate is delicately textured with flavours of pear, ruby grapefruit and white peach. Hints of wild honey and cashew add complexity to a palate which exudes balanced weight and persistent length.
