Margaret River

  • Product details
    Margaret River’s international reputation for exceptional Chardonnay is no better represented than by Cape Mentelle. This style is inspired by traditional methods resulting in aromatic complexity, a finely textured palate and long, clean finish.
  • Tasting notes
    The intense nose opens with ripe citrus, white peaches and pineapple, leaving way for toasted nuts, wisteria, muscat and very savoury undertones. The textural, almost oily palate is fresh but already rich and enveloped with warm charred oak and brioche notes on the finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday,

Vintage 2017 - “Predominantly from the estate vineyard, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, barrel-fermented in French barriques (one-third new), part wild, part cultured, yeast-fermented, matured for 9 months with weekly battonage. Gleaming straw-green; a super-elegant, yet extremely complex, wine, with pink grapefruit to the fore, balanced in both texture and flavour by buttery brioche.”
