Palate Profile

From acclaimed winemaker David Hohnen, who co-founded Cape Mentelle in Margaret River in 1970 and founder Murray McHenry

"Halliday Wine Companion - Australian Winery of the Year 2022 & 2023"

The nose opens with notes of sea spray, crushed shells, frangipani and delicate spiced pears. Wild fermentation with full solids provides flinty complexity and extended time on lees adds intrigue and excellent length to the palate. A distinctive saline acidity and attractive chalk-like structure complement the mineral nature of this unique Southern Margaret River vineyard near right by the Indian Ocean.

Critic Awards

It has a bitter phenolic kick through the finish that adds a layer of sparkle, interest and excitement to the wine and creates a salty undulation through the finish.

Grilled nuts, grapefruit pith, marzipan, nougat, brine and struck-match aromas, really complex and alluring. Focused and fine on the palate, which is tight, citrusy, pithy, layered and finesse and elegance to it. The oak and acidity beautifully within the wine and create layers of sophisticated bliss.

Carries exceptional complexity with bacon fat, delicatessen and melon fruit aromas plus honeyed oak in the background. It then builds considerably on the palate thanks to juicy acidity which provides fantastic energy with a distinctive saline edge to citrus fruits plus well integrated oak before a generous, pure finish.
