Winemaker Notes

The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a light hay with lime green edges. Aromas of fresh green lime, lemon sorbet, crisp cucumber, hints of sea spray, lemongrass, wisteria blossom, pink peppercorn. The palate is characterized by fresh lemon and lime juice, passionfruit, green apple skin, nectarine, lemon curd, creamy and mineral, hints of iodine and Norfolk pine needle.

The winemakers recommend that the freshness of the wine is accentuated by chilli tempura prawns atop a green mango salad, scallop ceviche with lime aioli drizzle or lightly fried greek haloumi cheese nestled on a summer green salad.

COMMENTARY: Nothing cleanses the palate better than a Sauvignon Blanc, and when the winery combines this grape variety with Semillon, the results can be quite outstanding. The 2017 Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is at the top of its game. TASTING NOTES: This wine is balanced, refined, and generous. Its aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, savory spice, and ripe wintermelon should pair it divinely with a crisp Dungeness crab salad with a lemon citrus dressing. (Tasted: February 7, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Attractive fresh herbs with lemon citrus and gentle aromas of tropical fruit. The palate has a vibrant, tangy edge with lime and fresh grassy flavors. A bright, crunchy finish.

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.
