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.

An extraordinary wine with everything you want in a wine... citrus, acidity, balance... aromatics... you name it... it reminds me of the elegance of an old cuban dancer... where age is not a burden but an asset... this wine is only 3 years old though but all flavours have integrated but not hidden... like a picasso painting where all colour make little sense but give you an amazing perspective of art! 98/100
