"Cape Mentelle Shiraz Cabernet is a powerful wine revealing beautiful structure and complexity."

Shiraz and cabernet sauvignon have been blended in Australia since the late 19th century, in a style that uniquely combines the plush and savoury notes of the shiraz with the elegance, length and structure of the cabernet.
With this wine, Cape Mentelle reconnects with Australian wine traditions and blends these two outstanding varieties from the Margaret River region, creating a rich, deeply textured and complex wine.

Wine Companion

55/40/3/2% shiraz/cabernet sauvignon/merlot/zinfandel. A first – shiraz has not previously been part of the blend for the Trinders. On skins for 48 days, matured mainly in barrel for 10 months (5% new, American, French and Hungarian). Intense, dense and almost chewy, the alcohol leaves a trace on the finish. The oak is very evident on both nose and palate, but the ripe fruit is up to the task. This appears to have all the prerequisites for ageing. Impressive, for the price.

A largely old aok-treated 60/40 blend from the Trinders Vineyard. Striking feature is the balance. Seamlessly constructed with a layer of soft, plush fruit coated with a thin veneer of aok. Fine, chalky tannins add a little support through the length of the palate. Spicy and generous. Excellent drinking now or for the next eight years.
