Winemaker / tasting 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 with lime hues
Nose: Vibrant and complex with fresh grape fruit, chalk dust, pear, lime and Creme Brulee
Palate:Intense and powerful with complex juicy fruits of lemon and grapefruit balanced by subtle spicy vanillin oak and toasted brioche. The richness is perfectly balanced by a tight acid backbone and a mouth filling creamy texture carrying the fruit flavours to a long and bright finish.
