Wonderfully fragrant on the nose with notes of pepper, earth, leather and spice all complimented by a flush of floral tones over a base of ripe plum and black raspberry fruits. there's a lurking touch of gaminess that emerges with air and adds a hint of a wild edge to the flavors in the mouth. The wine starts off quite full in the mouth with black raspberry and dark cherry fruits but gains definition and freshness as it opens up. the tannins are very finely grained and the acidity keeps this lively and adds length to the long, dark, cigar butt and earth tinged fruits on the finish. Compelling Shiraz. 93pts

Shiraz 2007 - Cape Mentelle: Shiraz 2007 - Cape MentelleIn Anlehnung an die Weine des Rhônetals präsentiert der Shiraz 2007 seinen üppigen Charakter. Ein fruchtiger, komplexer, würziger und durchaus pfeffriger Rotwein, der unvergleichlich elegant erscheint. Die Aromen erinnern an Pflaumen und Brombeeren, die von einer feinen Tanninstruktur begleitet werden. Zum Teil von Hand gelesen, erfolgt nach der Maischgärung ein etwa 14-monatiger Ausbau in Barriques, hauptsächlich in französischer Eiche. Eine Stunde vor dem Genuss geöffnet, passt der Wein sehr gut zu würzigen Fleischgerichten, wie z.B. geschmorter Lammrücken.

Tasting this next to a range of Spanish and French wines is an interesting experience. It looks sweet and oaky by comparison, although none the worse for it. On the flip side the Australian wine is beautifully clean and has outstanding fruit quality. It is also the best wine on the night. Aromas of rich ripe berry, black pepper and toasty oak with a distinctly perfumed aniseed/mint lift. On the palate medium to full bodied with ripe berry, pepper, toasty oak and some aniseed flavors. It has firm fine grained tannins, fresh acidity and good length. Cool and warm at once. This wine is fine expression of the Margaret River style.

Bright, lively and appealing for its juicy plum and blueberry fruit, playing against savory pepper, smoke and clove notes as the finish zips impressively through the long finish. Drink now through 2015. 3,000 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2005 Cape Mentelle Shiraz Margaret River 750ml

Cape Mentelle is one of the leading wine producers of Margaret River, in the south of Western Australia. This vintage of Shiraz is superb: rich, full-throttle, full of spice and dark fruit.
