2015 Siblings Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

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

Variety: 66% Sauvignon Blanc, 34% Semillon
Alcohol: 13.5%
Cellaring Potential: 5-8 years

Nose: Bright and floral with a myriad of primary fruits, that features white peach, green melon, just plucked passionfruit, lime zest and lemon curd. The perfumed floral lift is noted with subtle elderflower and white jasmine. Nuances of a touch of nettle, vanilla and cardamom pod creates both depth and complexity. Palate: Finely focussed, the palate opens to soft and supple middle and is underpinned by a taught and fresh finish. Layers of lemon, lime, guava, fig, quince and green apple feature throughout with delicate floral and savoury notes laced between. Overall a youthful and vibrant blend.

"A refreshing coastal white, Siblings offers juicy flavors of litchi and a bitter citrus pith note. It's firm and clean, not at all aggressive, an elegant sauvignon to chill for cracked crab."

"Bred in the purple, with snow pea to start, next a parade of tropical fruits, striking citrus to finish, the oak influence evident in texture not in flavour."

"Tropical aromas cascade from the glass. A 66/34 blend, enticing fresh summery aromas of passion fruit husk, guava, little pineapples, some citrus and a suggestion of morning dew get things moving. Clean, crisp and fresh fruit seal the deal. Tight acid keeps all in check framing it perfectly. Green apple skin emerges with more time in the glass leaving green melons to wrap it up. A small portion spent four months in two and three year old oak imparting some texture - I like that. No complaints here - pass the seafood please. Drink now."

"Editors' Choice This blend of two-thirds Sauvignon Blanc and one-third Semillon gets a touch of barrel aging, reflected in its silky texture more than any overt aromas or flavors. The palate is fruit-forward, offering hints of citrus, underripe nectarine, wet stone and green apple, finishing long and mouthwatering."

"One of the entry-level wines for this great estate of Margaret River. It's roughly two thirds and one third blend with loads of primary tropical guava-like fruit aromas worked into the floral lifted bouquet. The palate is racy with a fine zippy acid creating a lip-smacking juicy finish. Excellent current drinking."

"Pale gold. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit scents and a hint of smokiness on the nose. Juicy pear, melon and Meyer lemon flavors show good depth and a snap of zesty acidity. Weighty yet vibrant in style, finishing long and supple, featuring lingering smokiness and very good focus."
