"The wines made here reflect their origins and regionality
and are consistently among the finest from the region.
The cabernet reaches exceptional heights”
Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2017
An individual expression of the stunning fruit hand picked from the mature, low yielding vines of our original Wallcliffe Vineyard. This wine captures the unique synergy of site, vintage and varieties to create a layered and complex wine with defined varietal characters and exceptional vibrancy.
The Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a tiny production from our original Wallcliffe Vineyard established in 1970 in Margaret River. The wine represents the vagaries of climate, individuality of site, the complementary characters of the two varieties and a restrained yet evocative winemaking approach. This wine will evolve to produce different characters and complexity over time and will benefit from medium term cellaring.
The big gun of Mentelle’s trio of sav-sems, showing fresh French oak, salad-herbs and a kind of balsamic wild-yeast lift. The barrel aromas dominate slightly. It’s very powerful, concentrated and rich with lovely balance in the mouth.Download all reviews for this vintage as PDF
