Leeuwin Estate Siblings Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose here was very complex with a deep, pith quality to the citrus fruit tones that were underlayed with classic notes of grass, jalapeno and gooseberry. In the mouth this starts out focused and rather crisp before filling out across the midplate with quince, grapefruit and passionfruit tones that lead to a tactile, almost slightly tannic finish with good mineral cut and fine, sneaky length. this has just lovely balance, complexity and mouthfeel and is a bargain at this price. 92pts

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.

This is a fantastic wine, all those flavours literally explode in your mouth... all kinds of citrus (Lime, Orange, Lemon, etc) with the righ balance of acidity and crisp which make your palate dance. A very long finish... it cries out for some oysters dressed with a Thai light marinade... 93pts
