Vinous 89 points - (made from a 60/40 blend): Light yellow. Spicy citrus and pear on the nose, with a subtle floral undertone. Fresh and precise, with lively lemon and orchard fruit flavors complemented by succulent herbs. Finishes dry, with lingering notes of bitter citrus and a gentle bite.  (Jul 2013)

Wine Spectator 89 points - Bright and refreshing, with pretty pear and nectarine fruit at the center, flecked by hints of white pepper and lime blossom. Drink now through 2015. 400 cases imported.-HS  (Aug 31 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 88 points - Components of this wine see some time in oak, so there’s a slightly smoky cast to the white peach and pineapple aromas. It’s medium-bodied in the mouth and lushly textured, with a slightly warm, grapefruity finish. Drink now. (Sep 2013)

Although Margaret River's most famous white wines are made from Chardonnay, its climate and coastal setting is far more similar to Bordeaux than Burgundy. Some of the world’s greatest Chardonnays do come from Burgundy, but the Leeuwin Estate’s Siblings blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon is a classic white Bordeaux blend and the beneficial growing conditions have definitely helped create a wine with surprising finesse and elegance. Aromas of lemon, lime, pear & subtle honeysuckle intermingle with hints of apricot above a racy and stylish wine. Nothing from Bordeaux competes at this price but then there just isn't the same demand for the wines of Margaret River. Based on the limited area suitable for vines and the high average quality of the wines, however, it is inevitable that this will change. For now, luckily, the Margaret River area can be a source of some excellent bargains. Grilled shrimp with a green papaya salad or a white asparagus risotto come to mind as fine partners but this wine will no doubt act as a refreshing complement to just about anything.
