Cape Mentelle Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2016
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.
"Mark this down as a 'buy'. It's buoyant with fruit flavour, slings admirably through the finish, has body, has texture, and while entirely fruit-driven it avoids coming across as simple via its edges of thistle-like flavour. It's a beauty. Alcohol: 13%. Closure: screwcap. Date tasted: May 17. Drink: 2017-2020. Rating: 93/100."
"This has lots of exotic fruit with dried mango, grapefruit and pomelo character. Full body, vinous and flavorful. Fruit forward. Lively. Drink now." James Suckling
