    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distinctive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered by a small portion of barrel fermentation. Appearance: Pale straw with green hues. Nose: Aromas of lychee, lime, grapefruit, honeysuckle, blackcurrant and a hint of wet stone. Palate: Juicy, clean and fresh with a talcy pithy structure balancing the rich fruit flavours of limes, passionfruit and honeysuckle. The texture is creamy and the fi nish bright, long and elegant.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From an 'early, short and fast harvest marked by incredibly low yields' (winemaker Rob Mann). A small portion of this wine is (old) oak-matured. There's something for everyone here. Sweet introduction but a steely seriousness to the finish. It encourages the sale and then closes the deal. Flavors of lime, passionfruit, thistles and gravel. Juicy, fresh and impressive throughout.
