Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
As one of Margaret River’s ‘founding five’ wineries, Cape Mentelle pioneered many of the region’s renowned wine styles and today is a benchmark for the quality of the region’s wines.
Cape Mentelle has a rich history of exceptional quality and consistency with Cabernet Sauvignon from a pioneering producer in Margaret River in the early 1970's to a benchmark producer today. A single vineyard wine with the style evolving over time, the aim always to define a wine displaying classic varietal character and opulence, strong regional identity and with the structure and fruit intensity to improve with extended cellaring.
Deep crimson; a classic bouquet of redcurrant, blackcurrant, cedar, olive and finely tuned French oak; medium-bodied and certainly no blockbuster, the palate is elegantly textured, silky and fine, building to a real crescendo of flavour; long, elegant and harmonious.
