Cape Mentelle gift box

Reliably excellent, year after year, the 2015 maintains the solid reputation that the Margaret River has for producing great Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blends. This wine has aromas of white melon, lime, grapefruit, honeysuckle and blackcurrant. The palate is juicy, clean and fresh, with flavours of lime, passionfruit and lychee. The finish is bright, long and elegant. Beautiful with basil pesto, fettuccine and grilled chicken.

Winemaking - When harvesting Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, the emphasis is placed on capturing vibrant fresh flavours with clean acidity. Fruit is harvested at night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with around 7% of the blend fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques. The wine was assembled after four months on lees and bottled in July 2014.

"In the groove. Lemongrass, citrus and gravel-like flavours. Plenty of body, intensity and texture but forever lively. In short, it delivers." 93 Points, James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2016.

"So pure and so intense. This should be the benchmark for this style from Margaret River. It all comes to life with that crunchy acid to lift the vibrant tropical fruits. A little splash of citrus juice and the rest is pure drinking heaven. Tuck in and enjoy." BEST BLENDED WHITE. Ray Jordan, The WA Wine Guide, 95 points (2013 Vintage).
