Details
If a bold, generous red is the kind of wine that calls to you, then you’ll enjoy this full-bodied Australian cabernet sauvignon. Boasting dark-fruit flavours and warm, peppery spices, it’s ready to drink now but will become even more earthy as it ages.
Made from a blend of grapes from across the Cape Mentelle estate and several carefully selected grower partners in the Margaret River region, this vintage has been meticulously developed to achieve a thoughtful balance and complexity.

CAPE MENTELLE BEN CANE

TASTING NOTES:
Deep and complex

Appearance

Deep, dark garnet with black plum edges.

Aroma

Deep and complex on the nose, it has a mineral blackcurrant core with touches of anise, bay leaves and dark chocolate giving way to rich elements of rosemary, spearmint and a moist forest floor.

Taste

On the palate, expect intense flavours of cocoa powder with dark forest berry fruits, peppered with notes of spiced ginger and caramel toffee.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A wet winter followed by a cool spring gave a late start to the growing season, but glorious sunshine and settled weather resulted in an excellent, fruitful crop that was one of the latest yet highest-quality vintages on record.
 

The resulting blend is 90% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot and 5% merlot.

FOOD PAIRING CAPE MENTELLE

FOOD PAIRING:
A match for spicy, earthy dishes

Pair with five-spice-dusted crispy duck with soba noodles, or a hoisin-glazed ribeye steak that's been cooked over coals then served with blistered potatoes and minted peas. Or try it with a spicy Moroccan tagine of root vegetables, aubergine and courgette. And to elevate the wine's savoury, earthy elements serve it with a simple dish of buttered pappardelle with shaved black truffles.
