“I genuinely feel that today’s Prelude would give early vintages Art Series a really good run for their money…  Matthew Jukes, Top 100 Australian Wine Report 2022/23

Margaret River produces more top-quality Chardonnay than just about any region in Australia, and from one of the founding wineries comes this gorgeous Chardonnay of uncompromising quality and drinkability. The balance achieved by Leeuwin Estate between flavour and structure is impressive, crafting a wine that is delicious to drink now, but in typical Leeuwin Estate style, it is a Chardonnay that will continue to build complexity as it ages.  

With the new release of the iconic Art Series Chardonnay pushing above $160 per bottle, the value on offer with the second ‘Prelude’ label is phenomenal.   For closer to $30, you are getting a wine that is only a fraction below the quality of the Art Series in quality. (Yes, that’s almost five bottles of Prelude to one of the Art Series. Crazy, I know) If you love Chardonnay, this is a no-brainer.

Our notes

This is beautiful on the nose showing quality French oak and detailed white peach, fresh pear, fig and grapefruit, flowing onto a vibrant flavoursome palate with similar notes, all held together by cleansing lemony acidity and pleasing light cashew nutty complexities. CR

I like the way this complements the Art Series chardonnay and has its own distinct personality. It gently reveals flavours of melon, stone fruit, ginger spice and beeswax. It’s rich and ripe, tangy and juicy, fuller bodied and so easy to enjoy. Good drinking now.

Pear, green mango, a little dusty spice here too and slight struck match. It’s flavoursome, but fine-boned, gently chalky, juicy but tight, with a cinnamon and zesty lime finish of very good length. Excellent. Classy. Touch and go for 94 points really.

“This is the second string to Leeuwin's imperious Art Series cuvee, yet few corners are cut. A bit broader texturally and of more fruity immediacy. Think canned peach, glazed quince, orange verbena, nougat and beautifully placed oak, gently caressing the seams. Mid-weighted and packed with flavor and integrity, this drinks far better than many producer's top wines.
