The Cabernet Merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux. Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for outstanding Bordeaux varietal and blended wines which are perfectly suited to the climate and soils of Margaret river. This blend seeks to capture the depth and structure of cabernet with the dark fruit and plush flavours of merlot, which when blended create a well- rounded, full and rich style.
PALATE: Medium to full bodied with sweet ripe fruits of mulberry, plums and currants. The structure is fine with cocoa powder soft tannins providing great length and intensity of flavour.
AROMA: Perfumed candied violets, cloves and black currant, with an inviting meaty note and hints of cocoa.
