Expert Reviews

A 65/35% blend that is delightfully crisp and crunchy, the undertow of minerally acidity running below the more sedate guava and gooseberry flavours, a twist of Meyer lemon on the finish the cream on the cake. Leeuwin Estate—5 star winery. Rating 92 points - James Halliday’s Wine Companion Magazine, June/July 2014

“ A fresh and zesty SBS of impeccable varietal definition, holding beautiful freshness more than a year after harvest. Lemon zest accents are supported by tense acidity and soft, finely textured structure, thanks to one-third fermentation in old barrels. It elegantly fulfils the brief of achieving textural mouth feel without a hint of oak flavour.”Rating 92 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste

“Vibrant, fresh and zingy little sav blanc Semillon. Opens with crunchy passionfruit and light tropical grassy edges. The palate is crisp and pure with a light snow-pea edge of herbaceousness on the finish. Lovely easy drinking style of wine." 90 points. Ray Jordan, The West Australian, 31 July 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Savoury, fragrant and complex, a myriad of aromats and primary fruits meet, expressed through grapefruit, lemon pith, honeydew melon with cut hay, lemon thyme, gun flint and cardamom pod.

Palate

The palate has a soft, integrated and textural entry; figs, quince, lemon flesh and Golden Delicious apples are the feature. A touch of cream and sweet spice provide a three-dimensional palate. Fermentation in older French barriques enhances its width and length.

The rebranded Siblings label celebrates the family lineage of Leeuwin, with three generations of the founding family now leaving their footprints on the development of the Estate.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Leeuwin Estate, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district, consistently produces wines that rank with the world's finest.

In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, legendary American winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard.

Originally a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved, under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Robert Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor.

A nursery was planted in 1974 and the initial vineyards were deep-ploughed, deep-ripped, emptied of stone, planned, pegged, measured, marked and eventually planted by hand over a five year period from 1975.

Featuring state-of-the art facilities, the winery building was opened in 1978, celebrating with a trial vintage. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979, and was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay in an international blind tasting.

Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, and now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, Leeuwin now exports to over 30 countries.
