Cape Mentelle has a rich history of exceptional quality and consistency with Cabernet Sauvignon from a pioneering producer in Margaret River in the early 1970's to a benchmark producer today. A single vineyard wine with the style evolving over time, the aim always to define a wine displaying classic varietal character and opulence, strong regional identity and with the structure and fruit intensity to improve with extended cellaring.
The generosity of the nose displays abundant brooding black fruits and a mix of dark cherries. The bouquet is completed with hints of cocoa nibs, flint, wild thyme and orange peel.
The palate shows a vibrancy of concentrated blackberry fruits with dark bramble and vanilla spice. The dense and refined tannins are velvety and supple and the finish has lingering hints of minerality and mocha nuances.
