Winemaker Notes

A complex and layered palate and features a delicate lemon, pear and lime fruit spectrum at the forefront. Tight and focused, woven together by a pristine natural acid line. Mealy notes, gunflint and subtleties of nougat, fragrant jasmine and sweet spice provide breadth to an elegant nose. Delicately textured with vibrant grapefruit and freshly cut lime, width and complexity enhanced by fluffy nougat notes. A classical wine frm an outstanding vintage.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 92
Australian Wine Companion

The warmth of '11 in Margaret River has given birth to a Prelude of considerable volume and strength. Concentrated lemon, grapefruit and white peach draw out long and tight on a finish of finely structured acidity. In spite of its proportions, it finds an impressive harmony in its fruit presence and acid poise.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Fresh and lively, with vibrant acidity to balance the ripe pear and floral flavors, hinting at clotted cream as the finish lingers.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This may be the best vintage of this wine yet. The aromas and flavors are a lovely blend of citrus, stone fruit and roasted cashew, while the mouthfeel is creamy and lush without being soft or flabby. Drink now–2017.

Leeuwin Estate
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.
