Winemaker Notes

A product of traditional vinification including fermentation and maturation in French oak, from one of Australia's top Chardonnay regions. Rich fruit, aromatic complexity, a long, balanced palate that finishes with clean acidity.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The Chardonnays coming from this winery in recent years are truly worth a hunt. Winemaker Tim Lovett informed me that he whole-bunch presses the Chardonnay with some settling, but he likes to use relatively turbid juice and practices batonnage weekly during maturation to build texture. “The Chardonnays tend to open up after 2 years and are designed to age over 10-15 years,” he said. The 2007 Chardonnay has intense aromas of pineapple, green guava, mandarin peel and fresh ginger. Crisp, rich and silky in the mouth, it gives concentrated flavors with seamless oak. The finish is very long with some minerals, drinking now to 2017+.

Cape Mentelle
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.
