Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distinctive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered by a small portion of barrel fermentation.

The vibrant and aromatic blend produces a fresh, distinctive wine that accentuates the unique character of both varieties. Meticulous winemaking preserves the remarkable intensity of fruit flavour and provides the structure, weight and texture that characterise the Cape Mentelle style.

Expert Reviews

So pure and so intense. This should be the benchmark for this style from Margaret River. It all comes to life with that crunchy acid to lift the vibrant tropical fruits. A little splash of citrus juice and the rest is pure drinking heaven. Tuck in and enjoy. Rating 95 - BEST BLENDED WHITE - Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide 2014

In the words of Cape Mentelle winemaker Rob Mann, the 2013 vintage in Margaret River was an “early, short and fast harvest marked by incredibly low yields”. A small amount of this wine (7%) is matured in new and old oak. It’s a sweet, generous, perfumed nose but put it in your mouth and the wine’s steely dryness asserts itself. This looks the goods. There’s ample flavour of lime, passionfruit, thistles, passionfruit and gravel, but as much exuberant, jubey flavour as there is – texture is the key here. It’s blooming smooth. It’s also drinking beautifully in its youth. Rating 91 - Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front

Juicy, clean and fresh with a talcy pithy structure balancing the rich fruit flavours of limes, passionfruit and honeysuckle. The texture is creamy and the finish bright, long and elegant.
