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.
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.
