There's an artful elegance,
layered depth and precise focus
about Cape Mentelle's wine”
Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015
An individual expression of the stunning fruit hand picked from the mature, low yielding vines of our original Wallcliffe Vineyard. This wine captures the unique synergy of site, vintage and varieties to create a layered and complex wine with defined varietal characters and exceptional vibrancy.
The Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a timeless classic blend taking inspiration from the great white Bordeaux. In Margaret River, both varieties find a rare and complementary expression: while the Sauvignon is intensely fruity but also focused and mineral, the Semillon is generous and textural. The winemaking approach relies on the selection of our most exceptional fruit and is mostly hands-off to showcase the terroir and the vintage expression, supported by our most respectful choice of French oak.
One of the most distinctive wines made in Maragret River. It displays such richness and depth of fruit, with oak playing and important part. Beautiful mix of lemon zest and vanilla with stone fruit and orange zest swirling through it. Has been refined from the earlier versions to the current style while losing nothing in fruit weight and complexity. Love the style with a few years of age on it.
Dense and layered with dried apple and lemon character and some chalk. Medium body, solid core of fruit and a fresh finish. Phenolic tension. Screw cap. Drink now
"Stylish example of this famed regional blend. It’s both steely and cuddly at once. Grapefruit into thistles into tropical fruit, with woodsmoke and gravel characters joining in the chorus. Excellent body and weight, topped off with plenty of linger through the finish. Excellent drinking right now, though no hurry."
