Winemaker 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, while providing a full-flavored 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.

Critical Acclaim

JH 95
Australian Wine Companion

Bright quartz-green; this is the unwooded version of Cape Mentelle's sauvignon blanc semillon, but shows the fruit intensity and complexity that allows the (oaked) Wallcliffe version to succeed so well. Here there is a panoply of aromas and flavours spanning citrus/grapefruit, stone fruit and tropical fruits (whatever you care to mention) sustained by lovely natural acidity.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Light, tangy and distinctive for its pear and peach fruit, balanced with savory herb and lime notes. The finish lingers deftly. Drink now. 4,000 cases imported.
