“The perfect balance of this wine is central to its place at the top of the Margaret River chardonnay tree.”

99 points. Top 100 Wine.

James Halliday, Halliday’s Top 100 Wines, The Weekend Australian Magazine, 18/19 November 2023

“In many ways the most Burgundian of any of the Leeuwin releases, this will rank up there with the best to date. “

99-plus points. White Wine of the Year.

Ray Jordan, WA Wine Review 2023

 “Flavours persist, as does the finish, and it will age beautifully but hard to resist now. Impressive wine.”

97 points.

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 2 August 2023

“This leaves such an impression on so many fronts: firstly, the fabulous red-purple hue followed by aromas of dark fruits, baking spices and warm earth and finally, its texture.”

95 points.

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 6 July 2023

“I have to say I think this is the best Art Series savvy yet released. It combines the beautiful aromatic nuances evident immediately with a beautifully crafted textural palate. “

95/100.

Ray Jordan, WinePilot.com, November 2023

“Yes, everyone knows Margaret River is not renowned for riesling but this producer is, and, as per usual, this is a good one. It’s spicy, tangy and full of florals, citrus with lemon bath salts and a sprig of mint.”

95 points.

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 2 August 2023

“There’s an oceanic quality to the nose here: lime blossom and sea shells. Fresh, evolving and textured with layered complexity lingering on the mid-palate, then a clean, moreish finish.”

Highly Recommended.

Roger Jones, Justin Knock MW, Julia Sewell, Decanter Magazine, November 2022

“A charming wine and one of the finest Prelude Vineyards releases to date. There’s a fineness to this, subtly from the aromas and flavours to the palate.”

95 points.

“Wonderful buying here… This really is a terrific value Shiraz.” “

92 points.

Ken Gargett, WinePilot.com, May 2023

“It’s an interestingly complex amalgam of characters—salted green apples, leafy herbs and briny acidity—that reinforce the wine’s excellent value for the money.”

91+ points.

Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, 6 July 2023

“Easy to slake a thirst with this tangy, tart and juicy rosé. Hints of red berries, watermelon and rind with cinnamon and mint. The powder puff of acidity keeps this refreshing and pleasing in equal measure.”

93 points.

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 15 May 2023

“This is lovely, layered with pink grapefruit and citrus, sailing through to a cool clean finish. There’s an expansive, mouth-filling mousse and nice balance. The tangy lemon, thirst-quenching acidity is a highlight.”

92 points.
