Cape Mentelle

Cape Mentelle Shiraz 2017 750ml


96 Points - 2022 Halliday Wine Companion

Cape Mentelle Shiraz draws inspiration from the techniques and wines of the Northern Rhône Valley in France. The fruit is destemmed, berry sorted, cold soaked and traditionally fermented. Maturation in both large oak vats and small barriques is aimed at retaining the refined fruit, floral and spice characters of the variety.

Nose: Complex and vibrant brambly blueberry, red currants, all spice, schezuan pepper and a touch of fruit.

Palate: Plush and rich with juicy bright fruits of plums, and mulberry complemented by hints of spice. The full flavoured palate is richly textured balanced by a long fine and spicy finish.

Food Pairing: Aniseed tea smoked duck breast, hoi sin sauce with wild rice and Asian greens.

ABV: 14.5% / Variety: 100% Shiraz / Origin: Australia
