Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright and shiny watermelon juice colour

Aroma

The nose is an explosion of fresh fruit, with enticing raspberry nectar, estery aromas of wild berries and exotic fruit, supported by a slightly creamy caramel note

Palate

The palate starts with a burst of strawberries and cream, with a touch of zesty cassis and lots of melon and citrus notes. The flavours are long and reminiscent of berry liqueur with a seriously vinous and peppery finish that adds to the round, voluminous mouthfeel

Food Matching

Melon with prosciutto, Asian inspired or fusion fare as the wine will take on lemongrass, basil, chili, risotto lobster croquettes, classic tapas and even sushi

Blend

Shiraz 78%, Tempranillo 8%, Grenache 8%, Sangiovese 6%

Cellaring

Drink fresh, 12-24 months

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.
