The cabernet merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux.

Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for long lived cabernet and this blend seeks to capture the quality of varieties that, when blended with small amounts of petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec, create a well rounded, full and rich style.

Appearance: Dark Cherry.

Nose: Lifted blackcurrants with mocha, dried tobacco leaf and hints of lavender lying underneath.

Palate: A concentrated palate led by fresh currants and ripe cherries. Generous texture and fruit weight are complemented by savoury oak, creating a long, even palate with fine delicate tannins.

Food Pairing: Indian spiced lamb rack.

Cellaring: Drink now to 2017.

Producer Information

Cape Mentelle Vineyards, established by David and Mark Hohnen and now part of the Moet Hennessy Wine Estates, is a specialist producer of premium wines in Margaret River in the south west corner of Western Australia. One of the country's finest wine regions, Margaret River enjoys a maritime location, with the added advantage of a long dry growing season.
Cape Mentelle was one of the first vineyards established in the Margaret River region. First planted in 1970, there are today over 180 hectares under vine and the winery, constructed in 1977, crushes about 1,500 tonnes of fruit from estate vineyards and contract grown fruit sourced from within the region. Primary plantings are of cabernet sauvignon, semillon and sauvignon blanc with smaller amounts of shiraz, zinfandel, merlot and chardonnay.
The winery and original vineyard lie between the town of Margaret River and the Cape from which it takes its name. The original Mentelles were Frenchmen, geographer Edmunde and his cartographer brother Francois-Simon, who lived in Paris in the early 1700's.
Cape Mentelle Vineyards, is committed to the concept of true regional styles and will continue to expand its operations to produce quality wines. The company believes that the role of specialist wineries lies in the production of premium wines from varieties best suited to specific regions. Emphasis is placed on individual fruit character and the development of a recognisable estate wine style.
