Expert Reviews

"If you’re cruising the aisles of a bottle shop and feel a little flustered, Cape Mentelle is invariably a safe bet. I’ve not done that for a while, though I hear Mattinson has been out doing a bit of cruising recently. Light spice, lime, ginger and almond. Bright, tangy, light gloss, touch of flint and light pineapple flavour with a little vanilla in the mix. Clean dry flinty finish. Very nice. Typical of the modern Cape Mentelle style. Give it a year or so before drinking, as it’s released too early. " Rating 95 - Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2015

"Very restrained, subtle and finely crafted, with a delicate bouquet of peach, pear and pineapple aromas, creamy, nutty vanilla oak and restrained nuances of apple, cloves and cinnamon. It's smooth and polished, with a seamless, sweetly oaked presence of stonefruit, melon and faintly tropical flavour extending long and persistent, building intensity of flavour towards a tightly focused finish of brisk, lemony acidity." Rating 92 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (AUG/2014)

Cape Mentelle is a founding winery of Margaret River, established in 1970. One of the most remote wine regions in the world located in the south west corner of Australia, its natural beauty with spectacular coastlines captivates visitors. Here the maritime influence of the Indian Ocean ensures even temperatures, providing consistently excellent vintage conditions.

Cape Mentelle pioneered many of the region’s renowned wine styles and today is a benchmark for the quality of the region’s wines. Accolades including consecutive wins of Australia’s most prestigious wine trophy with the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon in 1983 and 1984, helped put Margaret River on the international wine map.
