Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

In 2015 the Cape Mentelle Trinders Vineyard-block 5, located behind the vineyard shed, bore fruit so intense and reminiscent of the finest Christmas ‘treats’, that it had to be set aside from any blending. After 18 months of barrel maturation the winemaking team was excited to bottle just 200 cases of this unfiltered batch.

Shiraz Single Vineyard 2015

Presumed to have originated in the Balkans, zinfandel was introduced to the estate vineyard from California in 1974. Zinfandel is a particularly demanding variety to manage in the vineyard where it is prone to unruly behaviour. The rewards are reaped in the cellar, where we honor its Northern American heritage with traditional long maceration techniques and spicy oak to produce this uniquely rich and generous wine that has been a favourite of Cape Mentelle followers for years.
