Winemaker Notes

Margaret River has established an international reputation for high quality Chardonnay. The Cape Mentelle style draws inspiration from traditional methods to produce a wine displaying aromatic complexity and a fine, textured palate with a long, clean finish.

Appearance: Pale straw.

Nose: Zesty lemon and grapefruit aromas with lifted floral notes, underpinned by struck flint and ground almonds.

Palate: White peach, fresh figs and pear flavors are supported by a textured, mealy palate. Subtle oak combines with the fruit to produce savory complexity. The finish is long and clean with great intensity and vibrant, minerally acidity.

Food pairings: Roasted spatchcock with wild herbs and pine nut stuffing, on a bed of honey roasted parsnips and pears, served with steamed broccolini.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Classically styled aromas of butter, oatmeal, cedar and citrus fruits. Crisp acidity is in harmony with the medium+ body of generous lemon pie and cream flavours. Silky texture, long, layered finish. Drink now to 2014. Tasted February 2009.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Bright and tangy, this is appealing for its array of pear, quince and mineral flavors. Leaner and less opulent than other Margaret River Chardonnays, but tight and compact. A lively companion for seafood dishes. Drink now through 2012. 1,400 cases imported.

Cape Mentelle, Australia
Cape Mentelle Winery Video

Cape Mentelle Vineyards is a specialist producer of premium wines in Margaret River in the southwest 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 tons 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 1700s.

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 recognizable estate wine style.
