Blend and Origin
Cape Mentelle Rosé 2016
The grapes for this wine hail largely from Cape Mentelle’s Crossroads vineyard, where thirteen-year-old Grenache and un-grafted, Shiraz vines grow together on geologically ancient, free draining soils to produce exceptionally high quality grapes. Complementing this noble blend is a small batch of Shiraz from a sunny spot, 12km north in the area of Wilyabrup.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
