"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 classic blend is beautifully balanced wine with the flavour, structure and length of cabernet enhanced by soft, rich merlot. Traditional winemaking including basket pressing and maturation in French oak has resulted in a concentrated and luxurious wine of great integrity.
Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for outstanding bordelaise varietals and blended wines which are perfectly suited to the climate and soils of Margaret River. This wine captures the depth and structure of cabernet with the dark fruit and plush flavours of merlot which, when blended with small amounts of cabernet franc and petit verdot, create a well- rounded, full and rich style.
Deepish red colour with a faint tinge of purple. The bouquet initially presents smoked charcuterie aromas, suggesting lots of toasty oak has been employed. It's full-bodied, ripe and elegantly crafted, with fine balance, superb cabernet structure and terrific length. A delicious wine. I cannot remember a better Trinders.
