Winemaker's Notes

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.

Learn About Margaret River

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. The climate is reminiscent of Bordeaux in some ways, leading many winemakers to plant grapes of that nature, such as Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. 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.
