Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

$66.00

An engaging nose that is youthful, elegant and perfumed. Lavender, bay leaf, sage flowers and dried rosemary are swaddled around a dark core of blackcurrants, cherries and blueberries. Underlying notes of Garam Marsala spice, dehydrated beetroot, cacao, coffee and toasted anise wraps it all together.

The palate has symmetry between fruit and earth. Ladened currants greet quartz, mineral notes and laced bright acidity. Forest fruits, chocolate, cedar, and smoked clove give texture, capacity and volume around the mid-palate. Definition extends to structural, yet powdery fine tannins on the back palate.
