There's an artful elegance,
layered depth and precise focus
about Cape Mentelle's wine”
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015
Appearance: Pale straw.
Nose: Zesty lemon and grapefruit aromas with lifted floral notes, underpinned by struck flint an ground almonds.
Palate: White peach, fresh figs and pear flavours are supported by a textured, mealy palate. Subtle oak combines with the fruit to produce savoury complexity. The finish is long and clean with great intensity and vibrant, minerally acidity.
Food pairing: Roasted spatchcock with wild herbs and pine nut stuffing, on a bed of honey roasted parsnips and pears, served with steamed broccolini.
Cellaring: Enjoy now to 2014.
