Country/Region: Australia/Margaret River.
Grape Varieties: 52% Sauvignon Blanc and 48% Semillon.
Unit: 1 x 75cl Bottle.
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.
Appearance: Pale straw with green hues.
Nose: Delicate and lifted aromas of citrus blossum, lime, honeydew melon, blackcurrant and a hint of chalk dust.
Palate: Juicy clean and fresh with pithy acidity and mineral character balanced by rich fruit flavours of limes, passion fruit and pink grapefruit. The palate is bright, elegant, well balanced with a creamy texture and a long finish.
