Introduced to the Estate Vineyard from California in 1974, Zinfandel is a particularily demanding variety to manage both in the vineyard and the winery. The resulting unique and hedonistically rich wine makes all the hard work worthwhile and as such the Cape Mentelle Zinfandel has developed something of a "Cult" following for lovers of such a style.

A unique wine from the 36 year old, low yielding bush vines of our original Estate Vineyard. This zinfandel exudes flavours of plum pudding, black cherry and sweet spices on a rich, mouth filling palate. Hand picked, basket pressed and matured in the finest oak. Australia’s leading example of this bold and generous variety.

Expert Reviews

“A spicy, dusty zin that’s as long and smooth as a seasoned pop crooner. Blackcurrant hits the palate before dark cherry washes the finish”. 96 Points - David Prestipino, The Sunday Times. April 2013

Winery Tasting Notes


Vibrant mulberry.


Ripe berries, plums and rhubarb with Cherry Ripe and a hint of ages tobacco.


Opulent and rich with an abundance of plush ripe cherries and plums and some cinnamon spice. Although powerful the wine also exhibits restraint in its savoury tannin structure and long silky length sure to provide enjoyment for a couple of decades to come.
