Winemaker's Notes

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 passionfruit.

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.

Learn About Margaret River

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean. The climate is reminiscent of Bordeaux in some ways, leading many winemakers to plant grapes of that nature, such as Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. Other varieties that have found results are Chardonnay & Riesling.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
