LEEUWIN ESTATE PRELUDE VINEYARDS CABERNET SAUVIGNON – MARGARET RIVER
An engaging nose that is youthful, elegant and perfumed. Lavender, bay leaf, sage flowers and dried rosemary are swaddled around a dark core of blackcurrants, cherries and blueberries. Underlying notes of Garam Marsala spice, dehydrated beets, cacao, coffee and toasted anise wraps it all together. On the palate, currants greet quartz, minerals and bright acidity leading to structural, yet powdery fine tannins on the back palate.
Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec
- Size: .750L
95, Australian Wine Companion
This is vibrant and intense, layered with cassis and pomegranate, licorice, clove, graphite and nori. The layers are sewn together with threads of saline acidity that create structure within the shape provided by the oak. All things in place here – yet another compelling Prelude release from the team at Leeuwin. Unbelievable value for money.
92, James Suckling
Bright and fruit-driven with aromas of blackcurrants, mulberries, cherries, licorice and dried herbs. Medium-bodied with lightly chalky tannins and vibrant acidity. Fruity and delicious.
