Blend: Sauvignon Blanc (52%), Semillon (48%)
The color is pale straw with lime green edges. The nose shows rich lifted floral lychee with a wonderful flinty edge combining all the characteristics to be found in Leeuwin Estate Sauvignon Blanc fruit. The palate, though fresh and zesty, has an underlying basis of spicy cool climate berry fruits. The finish shows the potential to evolve into that refined citrus and
honey dew melon flavor that we now find in an older Siblings Sauvignon Blanc Semillon.
This is ideally drunk with a full bodied shellfish such as lobster or poached scallops with lemon beurre blanc. Also an ideal apéritif wine.
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.
