Margaret River makes famously intense, deeply stylish Shiraz, somewhat more sanguine and evocative than its distant relations from winegrowing regions further afield. The balmy maritime breezes and cooler nights produce a Shiraz wine that conjures up impressions of the prevailing mistral winds of Valley Rhone. Slightly more forward drinking than the estate flagships, Sibling is endowed with layers of radiant olive/plum fruit characters and piquant spice characters, supported by excellent length of the most graceful tannins.
Leeuwin Estate was at the very apex of Margaret River viticulture. Originally a cattle farm, it was developed under the auspices of American wine industry legend Robert Mondavi. The property was deeply ploughed and deep ripped, emptied of stone, pegged and planted by hand in the 1970s. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979 and was thrust into the international spotlight when UK Decanter gave its highest recommendation to the Art Series Chardonnay in an international blind tasting. Leeuwin now maintains a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, still under management of the resourceful Mondavi family. Alcohol 14.0%
TASTING NOTES
A brilliant deep ruby/ violet hue. Bouquet displays black pepper with nuances of spicy clove wrapped around blackberry and satsuma plum fruit which is further strengthened by spicy French oak. A medium weight wine showing an increasing intensity of flavour with dark raspberries and satsuma plums on the palate. Extremely soft and approachable through the middle with fine grain tannins contributing to an excellent wine of elegance, balance and power.

About the Leeuwin Estate Winery
Leeuwin Estate is family owned and operated, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district, it consistently produces wines that rank with the worlds finest
In 1972, following an extensive search for the area most suitable to produce the best varietal wines in Australia, legendary American winemaker, Robert Mondavi, identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard. Originally a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved, under the direction of Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Robert Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. A nursery was planted in 1974 and the initial vineyards were deep-ploughed, deep-ripped, emptied of stone, planned, pegged, measured, marked and eventually planted by hand over a five year period from 1975.
