Aroma

Intense nose aromas of dark cherry, sweet spice of cinnamon, cloves and liquorice. The wine has also a savoury character of black pepper and red meat to finish with notes of cigar box and roasted coffee beans

Palate

The intense concentration of flavours reflects aromas of the nose. This hearty wine has powdery and elegant tannins supporting layers of flavours from dark fruits to savoury jus, finishing with cacao and cigar notes

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.
