Leeuwin Estate Shiraz Margaret River Siblings 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Strongly fruit driven with lifted mulberry, blackberry and plum fruits balanced by vanilla, white pepper and spice. The palate is of medium to full body with intense black cherry and blackberry fruits carrying through to a long and focused finish with fine grain tannins framing the generous soft fruit.

After an extensive search in 1972 to identify the most suitable Australian area for the production of premium varietal wines, Robert Mondavi singled out a small plot of land in the Margaret River region. At the time a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved under the direction of owners Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. The Estate was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter magazine awarded their highest recommendation to the 1980 Art Series Chardonnay. Now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, the Estate is recognized as one of Australia’s leading wine producers and wine tourism pioneers. Featured three times in the prestigious category of “International Winery of the Year” by U.S. Wine & Spirits magazine, Leeuwin Estate wines nconsistently rank alongside the world’s finest.

Jammy mulberry fruits at first then quite herbal and floral with farmyard drying grass, hay, touch of leather, meadow, earth, and minor smoky toast note. Really well balanced in the mouth with good weight without it feel fat or forced, really lovely mouthfeel with spice, and mineral tones balanced by soil and dusty earth notes that add complexity to the sour cherry fruit. Soft, integrated acids, perfect tannin balance, touch of vanilla and wild cherry /bitter cherry candy on the moderately long. Fun with zesty fruit if a bit atypical. 90pts

This is bright and fruity on the nose with notes of blueberry and black currant lifted by subtle notes of smoke and spice. In the mouth it's fairly soft and resolved with a deep, round, smooth core of fruit but lacks a bit of complexity and detail. The finish is decidedly fun and fruity yet the wine shows good balance and is ultimately a restrained style of fruit bomb. 87pts

A classic medium-bodied shiraz with delicate ripe plum and blackberry fruits that carry onto the palate. A lovely structured wine with lingering sweet fruit which helps provide the wine with good length.



Strongly fruit driven with lifted mulberry, blackberry and plum fruits balanced by vanilla, white pepper and spice. The palate is of medium to full body with intense black cherry and blackberry fruits carrying through to a long and focused finish with fine grain tannins framing the generous soft fruit.
