Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2007
Bordeaux White Blends
from Margaret River, Australia
Cape Mentelle takes a minimalist approach toward this classic Margaret River blend of Sauvignon Blanc
and Semillon. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, while also
providing a full flavored 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: Aromas of citrus blossom and lemon myrtle with hints of snowpea, gun smoke and
Palate: The fruit flavors are vibrant and fresh, with white peach, lychee and fresh lemongrass.
The middle palate is juicy with a creamy texture and a crisp, lively finish.
Food pairing: Seafood platter with natural oysters, crisp baked sardines, tempura prawns and calamari
served with lemon herb aïoli.
