Description
 
After an extensive search in 1972 to identify the most suitable Australian area for the production of premium varietal wines, Robert Mondavi singled out a small plot of land in the Margaret River region. At the time a cattle farm, Leeuwin Esate evolved under the direction of owners Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Mondavi acting as a consultant and mentor. The initial vineyards were planted by hand over a five year period from 1975, with the state-of-the-art winery opened in 1978. In 1979, Leeuwin Estate had their first commercial vintage. Today, Leeuwin Estate maintains a team of highly-skilled and dedicated winemakers, under the direction of two generations of the founding family, exporting to over 30 countries.

Vintage variation aside, the quality of this wine has been on the upswing. The 2015 Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay may be the finest yet released, offering toasted grain seamlessly integrated with layers of stone fruit and pineapple. It's medium to full-bodied yet doesn't seem heavy or alcoholic, instead giving the impression of ripe fruit and restrained opulence. It's finally come into its own as a worthy (if still lesser) companion to the Art Series Chardonnay. Wine Advocate 91 (2015)
