Few stories can be told about modern Australian wine without mentioning the amazing rise of Margaret River, and Leeuwin Estate as a pioneer. Founded by Denis and Tricia Horgan in 1979, it is the star estate of Margaret River’s southern area; with a particular pedigree in its famed Chardonnay, but also relatively recent acclaim for Cabernet and Shiraz.
Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay 2022
Hello to the taste of Leeuwin Chardonnay at a very fair price.
Pear, green mango, a little dusty spice here too and slight struck match. It’s flavoursome, but fine-boned, gently chalky, juicy but tight, with a cinnamon and zesty lime finish of very good length. Excellent. Classy. Touch and go for 94 points really.
Rating: 93 Points
