Winemaker / tasting notes:
Cape Mentelle Shiraz draws inspiration from the most traditional techniques to highlight our ideal temperate, maritime climate in Margaret River for this classic Australian variety.
Appearance: Deep dark ruby
Nose: The nose is open and varietal with notes of black plum, applewood smoke and cracked pepper. Hints of cardamom and vanilla pods make the aromas very enticing.
Palate: Vibrant fresh plum accompanies roasted black fruit notes, supported by a good structure of smoky tannins, still youthful and peppery and full body throughout. The oak is sweet but structuring and the finish already shows good length, promising to improve with age.
