This wine shows alluring aromas of lychee, lime, grapefruit, honeysuckle and a hint of wet stone. The juicy, clean and fresh palate has a talcy pithy structure balancing the rich fruit flavours of limes, passionfruit and honeysuckle. The texture is creamy and the finish bright, long and elegant.
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 93 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "In the groove. Lemongrass, citrus and gravel-like flavours. Plenty of body, intensity and texture but forever lively. In short, it delivers."
2015 Vintage: 92 Points - Ray Jordan "Such an intense and vibrant blended white. You hear a lot about Cape Mentelle’s reds but they make mighty good whites and this cracking good wine is the perfect example. Precise. Fresh and punchy through to the long finish."
From the Winery
Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distinctive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered by a small portion of barrel fermentation.
The majority of the fruit came from the cooler southern half of the region, including our Crossroads and Chapman vineyards. The typical soils of these vineyards are geologically ancient, free draining sandy loams with a high percentage of lateritic gravel.
