There's an artful elegance,
layered depth and precise focus
about Cape Mentelle's wine”
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015
The vibrant and aromatic blend produces a fresh, distinctive wine that accentuates the unique character of both varieties. Meticulous winemaking preserves the remarkable intensity of fruit flavour and provides the structure, weight and texture that characterise the Cape Mentelle style.
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.
Such an intense and vibrant blended white. You hear a lot about Cape Mentelle’s reds but they make mighty good whites and this cracking good wine is the perfect example. Precise. Fresh and punchy through to the long finish.
Very light colour; young and fresh on the nose, with straw and snowpea hints. It's deliciously juicy, quite intense and very young on the palate. Good palate intensity and length as well as fragrance: an exemplary SBS blend.Download all reviews for this vintage as PDF Download all reviews for this vintage as PDF
