Winemaker Notes

A lifted, concentrated and layered nose with blackcurrant, red cherry, and boysenberry notes. Fragrant violet, clove, anise, cassia bark and black cardamom aromas sit suitably in the background. The palate is vibrant and tightly coiled revealing cassis, cocoa and finely tuned oak notes. Subtle spice, underlying char and roasted coffee bean characters offer delicate complexity. Laced acidity with silky ripe tannins provides both length and balance.

JS 92
James Suckling
This is layered and rich with currant, berry and walnut shell character. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Love it now but it will age wonderfully.

A beautiful and nicely refined wine, the 2013 Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon offers ripe red fruit, charming wood accents, and smooth tannins. No need to wait; pair it now with grilled beef. (Tasted: July 10, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Leeuwin's Prelude combines some of the region's characteristic Cabernet traits: currants and graphite, with floral and savory notes and a tangy, elegant mouthfeel. The tannins are silky smooth and the finish is long and fruity. Drink now–2025.

Leeuwin Estate, Australia
Leeuwin Estate Winery Video
Leeuwin Estate, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia was established in 1973 with its mission statement to: "Produce wines that rank with the best in the world through the pursuit of excellence".

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, first identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to owners, Denis and Tricia Horgan in the establishment of Leeuwin Estate. The first vines were planted by hand over a five year period from 1973.

Featuring state-of-the art facilities, the winery building was opened in 1978, celebrating with a trial vintage. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979, and was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay in an international blind tasting.

Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, Leeuwin Estate is now under the direction of two generations of the founding family.

Margaret River Wine

Western Australia

View all products

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux Blends with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. For white wines, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are regional specialties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
