Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Review
Having the distinction of being one of the founding families of the Margaret River wine region, the Leeuwin family definitely produces wine that presents generations of work (and some help from Robert Mondavi). Their first vintage was in 1979 and to this day they are producing regional defining wines. This Cabernet is an exceptional wine that shows the leaner side of the variety without diminishing its power. The nose is actually somewhat floral and mineral-driven with pops of berries (all of them). The palate has soft tannins and great natural acidity. There is a brightness to this wine that is not common for this grape. It is a welcome and wonderfully balanced addition to the world of Cabernet Sauvignon.
