    Few stories can be told about modern Australian wine without mentioning the amazing rise of Margaret River, and Leeuwin Estate as a pioneer. Founded by Denis and Tricia Horgan in 1979, it is the star estate of Margaret River’s southern area; with a particular pedigree in its famed Chardonnay, but also relatively recent acclaim for Cabernet and Shiraz.

Press Review

    Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
    90/10% cabernet sauvignon/merlot. 20 months in French oak (33% new). In case you missed it, ‘18 may be the greatest cabernet and chardonnay vintage in living memory in Margaret River. So goes it for the Prelude: sheer density of fruit and rippling length of flavour are the calling cards. Bargain at the price.

     Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    Bright and lifted aromatics of blackberry, red cherry, dried flowers, spice and bouquet garni. Medium to full-bodied, very fresh and lively flavours of boysenberry, satsuma plum, brambles, mint-chocolate and creamy oak. Lovely tannins finish the wine, which provide firmness, mouth-feel and length.

    Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    This is in pretty good form. It’s medium-bodied at the absolute most but it has more than its fair share of charm. It’s the purity that does it; the balance. Boysenberry and fresh blackcurrant/redcurrant with tips of mint, tobacco and cedar. Tannin is fine and in appropriate measure with the weight of fruit; it feels effortless and controlled at once. The cleanliness of this, the aforementioned purity, really works in this wine’s favour.
