Cape Mentelle Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River
- Margaret River, Australia
"Cape Mentelle is firing on all cylinders, with the winemaking team fully capitalising on the extensive and largely mature vineyards, which obviate the need for contract-grown fruit. Cape Mentelle is one of those knocking on the door of the Winery of the Year Award." James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2019 Edition
The winery takes its name from the nearby Cape, named by the French ‘Baudin Expedition’ which charted the coast of Western Australia in 1801. They named the Cape after two notable French scientists, geographer Edmund and his cartographer brother Francois-Simon Mentelle, who lived in Paris in the early 1700’s.
Their philosophy extends beyond the glass as they endeavour to create a legacy of sustainability and longevity. Constantly improving the potential of their vineyards and local environments, they pave the way for the next generation to continue the pursuit of crafting Australia's definitive wine styles and while doing so they are preserving and building on what is uniquely Cape Mentelle. The team at Cape Mentelle shares a love for the land and a deep commitment to sustainability that underpin every decision and operation.
Medium to full-bodied with sweet ripe fruits of mulberry, plums and currants. Generous texture and fruit weight are complemented by savoury oak, creating a long, even palate with fine delicate tannins.
