Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2018)
The 2018 Prelude Vineyards Chardonnay is a multi-clonal blend that spent nine months in oak (30% to 40% new). Hints of caramel accent pineapple and white peach notes in this medium to full-bodied wine, while the plush, ripe, tropical fruit finishes with admirable length.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2017)
The year 2017 saw a change in chief winemaker for only the third time in Leeuwin’s history: Tim Lovett. There are minor differences in winemaking, but overall quality hasn’t wavered. The Prelude range is an excellent intro to this iconic Margaret River label. The Chard wraps up grilled peach and pineapple, lemon curd, sea salt and vanilla bean neatly into a bundle of crystalline acidity, creamy texture and toasty oak, gently nodding toward Burgundy along the way. Drink now–2028 and likely longer.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2017)
Fragrant, with peppery white flower notes and orange zest details to the intense and juicy core of apricot and guava flavors. The refreshing finish showcases generous acidity and hints of lime juice. Drink now through 2029.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2017)
Delicious chardonnay with cooked-apple, lemon and pear character, as well as hints of cream. Full bodied, layered and flavorful. All here. Drink now. Screw cap.

James Halliday (JH) : 94 Points (2016)
Death, taxes and the quality of Leeuwin Estate chardonnay. This may ‘only’ be the Prelude version but its quality is as clear as a bright blue sky. Pure stone fruit, sweet oak, pear and a cleansing flush of citrus through the finish. It builds, it satisfies and it refreshes. Elegance and power in one

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 94 Points (2016)
Leeuwin’s Prelude Chardonnay sees 40 percent new French oak, in contrast to its Art Series line, aged entirely in new barrels. By turning down the intensity, winemaker Phil Hutchinson has created a gracious chardonnay that shows the Stevens Road vineyard in a gentle light. That gentleness extends to its texture, supple and silken, and to the pale scents of ginger and yellow flowers. The wine feels substantial, with intensity to its apple and baked-pear flavors—‘it vibrates on my palate,’ one taster said. All the elements of the wine are balanced, so it would probably age; the intention, however, is to present a wine to drink on release, and there’s little reason to resist its seductive beauty

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2014)
Green-hued yellow. High-pitched, smoke-tinged orange and yellow apple aromas, along with floral and buttered toast notes. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering sappy tangerine and pear nectar flavors that pick up a sweet vanilla note with air. Shows repeating smokiness on the finish, which lingers with very good, floral-tinged persistence
