Blend and Origin
Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2016
An excellent harvest in 2016, complemented by meticulous work in the vineyards, produced a characterful blend. This wine, 57% sauvignon blanc and 43% semillon from vineyards in the cooler half of the Margaret River region, underwent extended fermentation, mainly in stainless steel tanks, with 8% in new oak barrels. It spent four months on lees and was bottled unfiltered.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Seafood and cheese will complement this wine’s minerality
Fresh oysters served with a simple squeeze of lemon are an excellent accompaniment. Or try a warm bruschetta topped with fresh buffalo mozzarella.
Gently seasoned crab cakes, seared scallops or even a rich and creamy goat cheese tart will pair beautifully with this balanced blend.
