Overview

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.

Expert Reviews

“This is the wine that brings home the bacon, as it were, for Cape Mentelle. Quite perfumed with sweet herbs and Disprin, gooseberry, mixed citrus and fresh pineapple. Light and fresh, gentle and not at all abrasive, well measured herbal notes with toned down lime and pineapple flavours. Has a touch of chalkiness, clean acidity and a finish of good length – a bit like a gin and tonic. Rock solid. ”Rating 91 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (AUG/2014)
