Winemaker's Notes

The "Siblings" label was launched with Leeuwin's first Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and represents wines intended for fresh early drinking. As a family business, this label celebrates the role the second generation has played in the ongoing development of Leeuwin Estate.

The color is fresh vibrant pale straw with lime green edges. Fresh fruit flavors are dominated by Sauvignon Blanc characters of freshly cut grass, tropical fruit, passionfruit and spice. The clean and fresh palate is full bodied and luscious with soft sweet fruit and herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc flavors. The finish is well balanced and clean with a lingering taste of gooseberries.

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean.

Other varieties that have found results are Chardonnay & Riesling.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
