External Reviews for Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon New-Australia

External Review
07/13/2010

Its bright green watery yellow in color, opening with a nose of citrus, a little grassy herbaceousness and some riper, mellow characters that I think comes from some barrel work. The nose is actually quite subdued - its going to need some patience to show the real herbaceous delineation. That nose is incessantly pure and bounding with freshness. The palate follows with tight citrussy fruit & very dry, fierce acidity. It makes the palate very fresh, but its not for someone looking for subtlety. This is a very dry, intense, tight and powerful white that is dominated by grape fruity acidity, with hidden delights still to come.

A fresh and flavorful wine with the honey lemon-limey aromas of Semillon married to the grassy and gooseberry flavors of sauvignon. One of the standout wines of Western Australia's Margaret River wine region.

Has excellent juicy vinosity on the mid-palate, flavours of lemon, gooseberry and grass all intermingling, the touch of barrel ferment barely noticeable; excellent balance and length for short term cellaring. James Halliday. A Proprietary Blend wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2008 Cape Mentelle Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Created by the same wine makers as Cloudy Bay, they use the beautifully<br/>temperate area of Western Australia with the same precision as their Icon to<br/>create this lovely, cool blend. The Semillon is used to just smooth off the<br/>edges of the zing of the Sauvignon, as they do for Bordeaux's greatest whites.<br/>The combination is a glorious, creamy yet fresh and dry white which<br/>qualitatively is as good as Cloudy Bay. Perfect for this and next Summer. <br/>(Simon Staples, BBR Fine Wine Director)
