There's an artful elegance,
layered depth and precise focus
about Cape Mentelle's wine”
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015
Appearance: Dark, vibrant, ruby red.
Nose: A complex and inviting mix of couverture, rolled tobacco, blackcurrants, violets and wet slate.
Palate: A full bodied wine of great depth and integration, ripe fresh black fruits combined with many subtle flavours including plums, chocolate and aniseed. The oak influence is restrained yet supportive of the fruit flavours and together with the slatey fine tannins provides great length and integrity.
Food pairing: Margaret River Wagyu beef tepanyaki with shaved horseradish and sauteed shiitake mushrooms.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2029.
