Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Leeuwin wines express the individual vineyard terroirs of Western Australia. The Chadonnay is like liquid gold – round, ripe and mouth filling, with tropical fruits and just the right amount of oak creating perfect harmony

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) A youthful and expressive nose that features pears, white nectarines and lime flesh. Higher notes of jasmine and frangipani provide lift, fragrance and energy. Beneath lies a myriad of toasted sesame, vanilla pod, cinnamon quill and cardamom. A tight, seamless and elegant palate highlighted with figs, quince and lemon skin opens towards a delicately textured and contoured mid palate. Blanched almonds and hazelnuts weave through the primary fruits and textural layers, leading to a long and defined finish.

    complexity has developed with a more seductive nose followed by a lingering tropical fruits finish. likely to develop further 06/12 has indeed matured nicely with a more pronounced tropical nose followed by elegant complexity. still good for a number of years. 06/14 continues to mature. classy, creamy, representative of 1st class burgundy. flexible to go with wide range of food. has legs for 2 years more at least.

    "Round, generous and amazingly fresh, with a juicy hint of grapefruit playing against spicy pear, green guava and mint aromas and flavors that expand and persist onto the long, expressive finish. This just doesn't quit, remaining exquisitely balanced. Drink now through 2017. 500 cases imported."
