External Reviews for Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon New-Australia

External Review

A Proprietary Blend wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2008 Cape Mentelle Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River 750ml


External Review

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


External Review

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.

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)
