Palate Profile

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.


Critic Awards

Cape Mentelle has some very expensive, but very effective, grape sorting equipment, and this may be part of the reason for the purity and the singularity of this beautiful cabernet. It's all there, all laid out for you, blackcurrant/cassis fruit, spicy/earthy undertones and perfectly ripened tannins

Deep colour, good hue. The bouquet is marvellously complex: mossy undergrowth, sousbois, tobacco, nori and dried herbs galore. It's a more elegant style than the 2014 or 2009, understated and finessed yet piercingly intense with fine, soft tannins and a long carry.
