Cape Mentelle Cabernet-Merlot, Margaret River

Cape Mentelle Cabernet-Merlot, Margaret River

From relatively cool vineyards, a wine with cassis and dark fruits on the nose and some faint herbaceous notes. Full-bodied palate with more cassis and herbaceous flavours, well-balanced with fine grained, ripe fruit tannins. 58% of the blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc making up the balance adding a touch of spice rather like they do in Bordeaux. Traditional vinification methods are employed, including maturation in a mixture of French and American oak barriques.
