Product Overview

The 2017 Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay is a complex wine from the southwest corner of Australia. This Chardonnay begins with lifted and fragrant aromas of white nectarines, lime curd, Nashi pears, and baby peaches, heightened with notes of jasmine, lemon blossom, chamomile tea leaves, nuts, and brioche. 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 of creamy, baked apple and brioche, with diligent oak and subtle texture. The layered and contoured mid-palate is finely checked with a mineral acid thread.

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Appellation: Margaret River, Western Australia
Aging: 9 months in 100% French oak barriques, 40% new
Winemaker: Tim Lovett

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Fragrant, with peppery white flower notes and orange zest details to the intense and juicy core of apricot and guava flavors. The refreshing finish showcases generous acidity and hints of lime juice. Drink now through 2029. 500 cases imported." -MW, 10/31/19
