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.

External Reviews for Cape Mentelle Chardonnay Margaret River
A Chardonnay wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2007 Cape Mentelle Chardonnay Margaret River 750ml
Lighter in body and seemingly shorter this smells and tastes of melon, peaches and butterscotch. A pleasing seam of acidity is there to offset the creamy softness and there is a customary trace of spiced and sweet vanilla oak.
