Leeuwin Estate was purposely built from the ground up to a no expenses spared approach by America's most accomplished vineyard developer. Originally a cattle farm, the property was deeply ploughed, deep ripped, emptied of stone, pegged, measured and planted to vines by hand in the 1970s. It remains to this day under the stewardship of America's Mondavi family. Prelude Vineyard is an elite site, closely managed to yield the quality of fruit, requisite for the vinification of the definitive Margaret River classic dry white.
Great wines are born in great vineyards. Boasting one of the most modern wineries in the southern hemisphere, Leeuwin Estate offers its winemakers all the advantages of new age technology. Winemaking however, is an art as well as a science, and it is here where the skills of the winemaker are carefully combined with technology to produce the wines that have been so highly acclaimed. Vineyards are kept balanced with the yearly environmental conditions. With the emphasis on quality rather than quantity, yields at Leeuwin are kept low. Working with the environment and through skilled vineyard management, Leeuwin is able to produce fine fruit in the most environmentally friendly manner.
TASTING NOTES
A very pale straw with bright green tinges. The nose is very intense and lifted with passionfruit, green melon, lemon blossom and fresh baked bread aromas. Lime and tropical fruits round out a complex bouquet. The delightfully balanced palate is fresh, clean and lively with strong flavours of citrus fruits, passionfruit, and green apple. The fresh acid finish provides a penetrating length of flavour.

More About Leeuwin Estate Winery
Leeuwin Estate is family owned and operated, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district, it consistently produces wines that rank with the worlds finest
In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, legendary American winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard. Originally a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved, under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Robert Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. A nursery was planted in 1974 and the initial vineyards were deep-ploughed, deep-ripped, emptied of stone, planned, pegged, measured, marked and eventually planted by hand over a five year period from 1975.
