2014 Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay
Prelude Vineyards wines are made from fruit producing the most readily expressive wines, with the objective that they will drink well soon after release. Whilst still retaining ageing potential they impart typical Margaret River impact and character. The Prelude label celebrates Leeuwin’s association with the musical arts through the staging of the annual Leeuwin Concert Series.
Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Cellaring Potential: 8-10 years
$396.00 per case of 12
"Cool crushed with some skin contact, then pressed, 100% fermented in French oak (40% new) with a mix of wild and cultured yeasts, matured for 9 months. Most chardonnay vignerons would give their eye teeth to have a wine as good as this as their entry point. Light bright colour, and a juicy array of nectarine, white peach and gentle citrus fruit have distracted all attention from the oak. A lovely wine. 2029. Five Stars."
Halliday Magazine, April 2016
"Bright ripe melon and other tropical fruits, peaches too. Gently nutty, complex and stylish wine. The palate is richly flavored, and acidity drives weighty Margaret River chardonnay texture. Drink now."

Halliday Wine Companion 2017
"Succulent mango and peach flavours are ripe and lush, with spicy details and lemon zest notes on the finish. Intense and lively. Drink now through 2020."
MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator, 31 July 2016
"Editors' Choice The Art Series' little brother is all grown up and ready to stand on its own as a terrific wine. Toasted hazelnuts accent bold pineapple and ripe citrus flavors in this fullbodied, slightly creamy bottling. It's complete and complex, with a long, zesty finish. Drink now-2020."
