Leeuwin Estate Leeuwin Siblings Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia
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.
