Cape Mentelle SBS
Wine of the Month Special $19.99 | Special Ends 2 January, 2022
Cape Mentelle takes a non-interventionist approach towards this classic Margaret River blend allowing the region and varieties to speak with loud, clear voices, aiming to preserve fruit intensity and purity.
The style accentuates the fresh, vibrant fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered through several months of aging on lees; the land and sea vividly expressed.
What’s it like
The bright palate bursts forth with fresh citrus, tropical and floral notes of lime juice, grapefruit, green pawpaw, jasmine and fresh wild flowers. This wine has sinewy energy, displaying a fine line of acidity that carries the freshness and minerality to the end of the lithe palate. Elegant yet textural, there is great tension in the wine, which has a lifted floral white tea note on its finish.
“This wine displays great brightness and texture with a juicy deliciousness that begs to be slurped with fresh seafood, or savoured on its own.”
Ben Cane, Cape Mentelle Winemaker
