Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Presumed to have originated in the Balkans, Zinfandel was introduced to the estate vineyard from California in 1974. Zinfandel is a particularly demanding variety to manage in the vineyard where it is unruly and prone to catching diseases. But the rewards are reaped in the cellar where we honor this northern American heritage with traditional long maceration techniques and spicy oak to produce this uniquely rich and generous wine that has been a favourite of Cape Mentelle followers for years.

Zinfandel 2015

Cape Mentelle Shiraz draws inspiration from the techniques and wines of France's Northern Rhône Valley. The fruit is destemmed, berry sorted, cold soaked and traditionally fermented. Maturation in small barriques is aimed at retaining the refined fruit and floral characters of the variety along with the more savoury, spicy elements derived from our vineyards in Margaret River.

Shiraz 2014

The Cabernet Merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux. Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for outstanding Bordeaux varietal and blended wines which are perfectly suited to the climate and soils of Margaret River. This blend seeks to capture the depth and structure of cabernet with the dark fruit and plush flavours of merlot, which when blended create a well- rounded, full and rich style.

Chardonnay 2015

The Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a timeless classic blend taking inspiration from the great white Bordeaux. In Margaret River, both varieties find a rare and complementary expression: while the Sauvignon is intensely fruity but also focused and mineral, the Semillon is generous and textural. The winemaking approach relies on the selection of our most exceptional fruit and is mostly hands-off to showcase the terroir and the vintage expression, supported by our most respectful choice of French oak.

Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014

Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distinctive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered by a small portion of barrel fermentation.
