  • Product Details

    Cabernet Sauvignon has a long history in Australia's Margaret River region; the first plantings in the 1970s were very successful. Since then the grape has been central to Cape Mentelle's winemaking.

    Gently hand-harvested grapes and careful vine pruning ensure that this grape will continue to produce superior Margaret River wines. This wine's fruit intensity will develop beautifully over time.
  • How to enjoy

    • Service temperature - 10-15°C
    • When to drink - From now to 2039-plus
    • Storage advice - Store horizontally in a cool (10-15°C), dark place, and away from vibrations
    • Health warning - Contains sulphites
    • Alcohol by volume - 14%
  • Blend and Origin

    Precise vineyard management and a hands-on approach to pruning and picking results in the grapes receiving close attention. Select batches were fermented on skins for up to 110 days, and the wines were matured on the lees for between 18-20 months in selected French oak, around 55% of which were new. A blend of cabernet sauvignon (86%), petit verdot (10%) and merlot (4%).


Food pairing:
Pair with unctuous umami flavours

Main

Look to the rich umami flavour of red meat, or shiitake mushrooms cooked with soy sauce and smoked paprika, to bring out this wine's complexity.
