Cape Mentelle Margaret Sauv. Bla 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Pale yellow. Lively aromas of lemon zest green apple and white flowers with a chalky mineral overtone. Dried citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good concentration and focus with a gingery note adding bite. Clean and brisk on the finish with lingering notes of tangy lemon zest and a subtle herb nuance. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Cape Mentelle Vineyards:
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.
