Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Bottle 2004
Rich garnet in color. The aromas of cassis, nutty oak and a hint of menthol evolve upon breathing. The elegant palate once again displays the cassis found on the nose, along with violets, tobacco and subtle choc-mint characters. Firm, fine tannins ensure a balanced and well structured palate. A classic example of cool climate cabernet.
Cape Mentelle, sister to Cloudy Bay, is one of the founding wineries of Margaret River. Soon after launch, the winery twice won the Jimmy Watson Trophy, Australia’s most prestigious wine award. Margaret River has limestone soils reminiscent of Bordeaux, and a climate tempered by ocean currents, resulting in expressive and well-structured wines.
