"The wines made here reflect their origins and regionality
and are consistently among the finest from the region.
The cabernet reaches exceptional heights”
Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2017
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 winery today. An exceptional terroir wine, always representative of the vintage conditions, with a strong regional identity and the structure and fruit intensity to improve with extended cellaring.
A firm and substantial cabernet that has structure to support extended cellaring. It’s largely cabernet, with smaller amounts of merlot, petit verdot and, curiously, a little dab of shiraz. Has a lifted floral bouquet with notes of scented red berry and cedar. The palate is elegant, with juicy fruit balanced by some nice cedary oak and firm tannins. The style has changed in recent years to one of more robust dimensions.
