    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose is vibrant and concentrated with aromas of pear, hand picked peach and lime. Beneath lie layers of lemon curd and fig. Lifted frangipani, subtle cinnamon and peanut brittle provide further complexity. The palate is delicately textured with pear, ruby grapefruit and white peach. Hints of wild honey and cashew add complexity to a palate which exudes balanced weight and persistent length. An excellent vintage of Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay from Leeuwin Estate.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright, light straw-green; the bouquet is quite complex, the palate wonderfully elegant and smooth, yet not forfeiting the complexity of the bouquet, with creamy cashew notes as well as the white stone fruit base.

    From estate vineyards, the 2009 Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay was barrel fermented in French barriques and aged for 9 months on lees. The nose is ripe and intense, revealing notes of pink guava, melon and pineapple over cedar, preserved ginger and a whiff of mandarin peel. Full bodied, the concentrated layers of tropical flavors are nicely offset by refreshing acidity, and it has a pleasantly creamy texture. It finishes long and toasty.

    Good oak and a buttery Chardonnay which is why we liked it.
