Leeuwin Estate ‘Prelude Vineyards’ Chardonnay 

Heightened floral notes of jasmine, frangipani, chamomile and cardamommeet with the classical pear, lime and lemon fruit spectrum. The nose has energy with delicate complexity. Layers beneath the forefront include subtle oyster shell, brioche, nougat and almond shell.The palate is finely woven and lively. The clarity of fruit is highlighted with lime curd, pear and pink grapefruit. Throughout, the palate has great shape and texture; layers of cassia, clove and cashew create dimension within the primary fruit core. The structure is held quite tight with a fine acid line and mineral thread.

Jordan states “…in many ways it is a breakthrough in style, delivering its payload with such deft touch… This is clearly one of the finest shiraz from Leeuwin,
displaying complexity at another level.”
