75cl * 13.5% ABV * Margaret River, Australia
The Siblings label celebrates the family lineage of Leeuwin, with four generations now leaving their footprints on the Estate. The bouquet shows aromas of dark plum and liquorice are overlaid by earth, vanillin cedar and black pepper. The palate possesses juicy blackberry, liquorice and plum flavours over dried meats and spicy pepper. Fine elegant mouthfeel finishing with slightly dry tannins and vibrant youthful acidity. Spicy pepper, fresh plums, liquorice and dried meat notes on the finish.
"Intense yet mouth-watering and frisky, the black berry, cherry, currant fruit and tart bilberry fruit s vividly defined and persistent. Smoky, creamy French oak (20% new) smooths the tannins, and hints of anise, eucalyptus and dried sage emerge. Crunchy acidity makes for a sappy finish to this mid-weight, food-friendly Shiraz." 91 points Sarah Ahmed, Decanter Premium December 2021
“Delivers a decent mouthful of delicious black fruit dominant flavours. Touch of spice and licorice with a little dark chocolate. Grainy tannins and spices with a fine dusting of oak. It all stacks up so well.” 91 points, Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2021
