Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay 2008

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

No oak aromas on the nose, all fresh fruit. Nose of golden pear skin, peach and white nectarine. Full bodied and vibrant on the palate with flavors of pear, nectarine and peach. Nice pure fruit flavors. Subtle sweet spice and nuts. Nice wine. 92 pts. 5/18/13
