Review and Rating: *** $$ Siblings Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Leeuwin Estate, 2005, Margaret River, Australia

Check out Sauvignon Blanc at Amazon.



Review: The Siblings Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Leeuwin Estate, 2005, shows as very light, almost clear in the glass, with a tinge of yellow and green. The nose - classically sauvignon blanc - is strong of fermenting grass.

On the palate, this is sweet with a full, light acidic hint - think lemonade. Three stars out of five.

Wine Spectator awarded 87 points, writing, "Open-textured and fruity, with pear and apple flavours most prominent, shaded with herbal notes. Finishes dry and soft. Drink now. 2,000 cases imported."
