There's an artful elegance,
layered depth and precise focus
about Cape Mentelle's wine”
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015
Appearance: Deep crimson red.
Nose: Beautifully fragrant with wild herbs, aged tobacco and rich couverture complementing plush ripe brambly fruits of blackberries and mulberries.
Palate: A generous full flavoured palate of inky bright fruits including satsuma plums and cassis with fine cedary oak complementing the great length and vitality of the palate. The fruit flavours are cool and intense, the structure long and velvety.
Food pairing: Rare roasted saddle of hare served on Puy lentils with barely seared livers and crispy chanterelles.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2029.
