A brilliant expression of Cape Mentelle's meticulous winemaking style, this pleasant and aromatic blend produces a fresh, distinctive wine that accentuates the unique characters of Sauv Blanc and Semillon.
Fruity with a vibrant finish, there is an array of citrus and tropical fruit aromas and invigorating flavours that make this wine perfect with seafood.
Appearance: Very light hay with green hues.
Nose: Classic yet already intense and complex despite its youth with notes of cassis bud liquor, rockmelon, dried figs and rain-wet leaves with notable flintiness.
Palate: The attack is slightly saline and accompanied by notes of melon and lemon. The mouth then reveals its amplitude with delicate bread crust and biscuit characters supported by slightly pithy pink grapefruit that carries throughout and lifts the finish. The natural fresh acidity, already balanced by the tactile texture and complexity of flavors, will allow the wine to build even more length and structure through several years of aging.
