A delicious value Chardonnay from one of Western Australia's top producers. A regional classic style and very similar to the $80+ Art Series label, this has a gentle but complete ripeness of citrus and stonefruit flavour is elegantly rounded into butter and toast nuances. Stylish and texturally perfect, the Leeuwin prelude is delicious drinking for the sophisticated Chardonnay lover.

Its Origins

Leeuwin Estate is one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district.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 Denis and Tricia Horgan who founded Leeuwin Estate in 1974. The initial vineyards were planted by hand over a five year period from 1975. 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.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Huon Hooke

"Light yellow-straw colour, with a bouquet of subtle nectarine and an undertone of grapefruit, the palate echoing these flavours and finishing very crisp and dry. It's quite regional but tighter than expected. The palate has very good line, length and refinement. The finish is clean, dry and refreshing. 22 DEC 2018." Drink 2018 - 2027
