There's an artful elegance,
layered depth and precise focus
about Cape Mentelle's wine”
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015
This is the ultimate expression of a single vineyard site crafted from the mature, low yielding vines of our Estate Vineyard. This opulent cabernet has the complexity, intensity and elegance to benefit from extended cellaring.
Cape Mentelle has a rich history of exceptional quality and consistency with Cabernet Sauvignon from a pioneering producer in Margaret River in the early 1970's to a benchmark producer today. A single vineyard wine with the style evolving over time, the aim always to define a wine displaying classic varietal character and opulence, strong regional identity and with the structure and fruit intensity to improve with extended cellaring.
Remarkable achievement for the vintage; medium-bodied cassis, blackcurrant: tannins fresh rather than green.
...it’s scented with dusty aromas of small red berries, fresh and lightly toasty cedar/chocolate oak... supple and elegant, with some pleasingly intense small black and red berry fruit and a hint of plum knit with sweet vanilla oak...Download all reviews for this vintage as PDF
