Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay 2014

I lined this up with five chardonnays from various vintages and this stood up with its chest beating out.

Morning porridge aromas kick things off before it opens up with some air. Nougat, fleshy peach, creamy oak. There's a vibrancy about the fresh fruit here. Citrusy characters roll through before some nutty action is drawn out on a long a delicious finish.

Great depth and weight but with elegant finesse. Acidity is bang on.

Cellar for up to ten years.

Value here; it punches above its RRP.

Very good+
