Leeuwin Estate is one of the five founding wineries in the Margaret River district of Western Australia and is most well-known for its Art Series, which includes wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. Every vintage, an Australian artist is commissioned to design the labels, much like Château Mouton Rothschild.
The Siblings label celebrates the family lineage of Leeuwin, with three generations of the founding family now leaving their footprints on the Estate. Cellaring potential is 8-12 years
Concentrated red cherries, mulberries and blueberries dominate the nose. There is cocoa, coffee bean, oak char black cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon and lifted violets that are well positioned in the background. The palate is rich and layered with dark cherries, boysenberries and blueberries. Structural mocha-like tannins scroll to the back palate with subtle hints of anise, which is balanced with an elegant and buoyant acid line.
