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.

Appearance
Rich garnet
Nose
The aromas of cassis, nutty oak and a hint of menthol evolve upon breathing.
Palate
The elegant palate once again displays the cassis found on the nose, along with violets, tobacco and subtle choc-mint characters. Firm, fine tannins ensure a balanced and well structured palate. A classic example of cool climate cabernet.
The Vineyard
The fruit sourced for this wine comes from the Estate’s Wallcliffe Vineyard, planted between 1970 and 1972, located 8km from the ocean with a south-west aspect. The vines grow on gravel laterite soils over gravelly, clay sub-soils. Judicious shoot and leaf removal, trickle irrigation and springtime composting ensure vine health and physiologically ripe grapes.
The Season
Budburst got off to an early start however September and October were quite wet, windy and cold which slowed down shoot growth. Warmer weather in November saw the vines regain vigour and by December, supplementary irrigation was applied and another fine vintage was assured. Harvest commenced a week or so later than usual. Grape flavours were highly aromatic this year with higher than normal acid levels and lower than average yields.
