Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Lifted and fragrant with an abundance of limes, Nashi pears, white peaches and baby pineapples. Heightened with notes of jasmine, frangipani and lemon blossom. Nuances of nougat, cashew and toasted almonds combine with brioche, brulee and mealy notes lying beneath. The palate is bright, well weighted with volume and presence, whilst maintaining focus and definition. Pink grapefruit, white nectarine and baked apple feature with diligent oak and subtle texture. The layered and contoured mid palate is finely checked with mineral acid thread."
94/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion (2016 Vintage)
"Death, taxes and the quality of Leeuwin Estate chardonnay. This may 'only' be the Prelude version but its quality is as clear as a bright blue sky. Pure stone fruit, sweet oak, pear and a cleansing flush of citrus through the finish. It builds, it satisfies and it refreshes. Elegance and power in one. Drink by 2023."
92/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"It’s pure chardonnay. It’s sunny, it’s flavoursome, it’s splashed with an appropriate level of oak and it remains fresh/frisky through the finish. Indeed there’s almost a steeliness to this, and certainly a citrussy element, but it comes in the context of a wave of stonefruit and sweet, cedary flavour. Chardonnay 101, done well. Now or later."
92/100 Ray Jordan, The West Australian, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Mighty good chardonnay to be sitting just below the famous Art Series. A slightly more restrained expression than some previous wines. It has a refreshing purity and liveliness, with plenty of grapefruit and lightly charry oak. A creamy cashew touch adds some smooth texture into the middle palate."
