Leeuwin Estate is a remarkable name out of Margaret River. Legends they are, no doubt about it. Family-owned and run, the estate was born in the early 70's, when a Napa Valley winemaker identified the area is being the ideal climate for producing fine wines. Nearly 50 years on, Leeuwin Estate's wines is one of Australia's most sought after products.
An exceptional take on Chardonnay, as reviews by many will convey: "seemingly impossible", "extraordinary wine" "among the best" "confident appeal".
A clean, crisp, fresh style Chardonnay. Nuances of pear, citrus and peaches. Notes of nougat - a hint of oak influence on the wine. Excellent acidity for balance, delivering grapefruit-like sensations on the palate.
