2014 Leeuwin Prelude Chardonnay
Margaret River, Western Australia
Lovely balance to this wine with white stone fruit flavors and a hint of lemon. Juicy and round with some weight from the delicate malolactic fermentation.
$28.79 as part of a mixed case.
2+ bottles available.
"Cut limes, ripe nashi pears and white peaches greet the nose, amidst aromas of fresh nougat, honeycomb, brioche and rice wafers. Savory lemon rind, figs and quince create complexity, while oak derived toasted hazelnuts and cinnamon spice is diligently incorporated to enhance the balance. The palate is tight and defined, characterized by fresh lime, white nectarine and pears. Luscious texture delivers balanced depth and breadth to the palate. Oatmeal, nutmeg and subtle oak char lie in the background, with all components brought together with a taut and refreshing acid line."
"92 pts ... Bright ripe melon and other tropical fruits, peaches too. Gently nutty, complex and stylish wine. The palate is richly flavored, and acidity drives weighty Margaret River chardonnay texture."
