Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards the 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.
Pale straw in colour, with green hues, varietal sauvignon notes revolve around cassis buds, juniper berries and cracked black pepper. The nose then opens to complex fruit ranging from zesty white grapefruit to hints of lychees, lifted by ethereal floral notes of jasmine and passion flower. On the palate the attack is juicy clean, slightly saline, on notes of passionfruit and citrus. The fresh pithy acidity and mineral character, reminiscent of fine absinthe, fresh ginger and gentian bitters, give the wine a lot of vinosity and masculine personality, well balanced by the honey notes and creamy texture of the semillon and showing exceptional length.
Pairs well with crab cakes, fresh oysters or warm bruschetta with fresh buffalo mozzarella. : Due to the wine's strong personality :it will allow bold marriage with cheeses, especially well-aged slightly crystallized ones such as a 24 month Parmigiano-Reggiano.
