Details
A savoury wine packed full of explosive dark-fruit flavours and warm spice, Cape Mentelle's Shiraz from the Margaret River region is bold, generous and intriguing. Ready to drink now, it will become more earthy as it ages.
Made from a widely planted blend of grapes from across the Cape Mentelle estate, this wine is meticulously developed to achieve a beautiful balance and complexity that is aromatic and warming, juicy, spicy and rich.

CAPE MENTELLE BEN CANE

TASTING NOTES:
Crisp, radiant, aromatic

Appearance

Deep, dark mulberry with purple edges.

Aroma

An eruption of berry fruits – mulberry, stewed blackberry and blood plum – wrapped in sweet cinnamon and nutmeg spices. A mysterious sappy, floral note of purple violets is overlaid by shaved graphite and hints of mossy granite.

Taste

A muscular structure with a long finish unfurls slowly to reveal great varietal detail. The mouth is coated with candied berry fruits, fresh tobacco, cedar smoke and the warm, rich flavour of fruit cake with rum-soaked raisins. The tannins are chewy and grainy, driving through to a powerful finish of caramel, molasses, sweet cardamom and powdered cinnamon.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Cape Mentelle Shiraz 2018

The 2018 bottles are a shiraz-dominant blend (88%), with alicante bouschet (7%) added to give juicy and spiced notes, viognier (4%) for aroma and colour, and grenache (1%) for fruitiness.
 

The grapes were mainly destemmed, with several lots having a small percentage of whole-bunch inclusion for added depth.
 

Malolactic fermentation takes place in French and American oak barriques, with the wine left to age on fine lees for 17 months before blending took place.
