Cape Mentelle Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2002
Cape Menetelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend of suvignon blanc and semillion. The aim is to preserve as much frut intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distancitive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh frut characters of both varieties with tjhe added complexity and palete weight offered by small portion of barrel fermentation.
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.
