Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay 2008

Leeuwin Estate produces ones of Australia's finest chardonnays at the moment, at least in my humble opinion.  The "prelude vineyards" chardonnay is their second wine, and as might be hoped, was also very good.  It had a somewhat ostentatious aroma of peaches and tropical fruit.  Oak was there too.   The wine had similar flavours on the palate, with good length.  87 points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: $29.50
