75cl * 13.5% ABV * Margaret River, Australia
Leeuwin Estate is known for producing some of the finest wines, released under their 'Art Series' label, in the entirety of Australia. The Prelude range offers some stunning wines at bargain prices and are made to drink sooner than their Art Series counterparts. Pear, grapefruit and peach mingle on the juicy, full-flavoured palate - classy Chardonnay without being heavy or buttery. A nutty, somewhat savoury finish rounds things off nicely. Pair with lobster rolls or fresh white crab. 94 Points, James Halliday.
