Cape Mentelle takes a non-interventionist approach towards this classic Margaret River blend allowing the region and varieties to speak with loud, clear voices, aiming to preserve fruit intensity and purity.
APPEARANCE: A brilliant light hay colour with mineral green edges
NOSE: This wine exudes fresh green lime juice, white nectarine and Granny Smith apple skin, overlaid with crisp cucumber aromas with hints of fresh cut lemongrass, passionfruit and Meyer lemon peel. A subtle sea salt character persists over a seam of mineral wet granite to give a lifted freshness to this complex nose
PALATE: The bright palate bursts forth with fresh citrus, tropical and floral notes of lime juice, grapefruit, green pawpaw, jasmine and fresh wild flowers. This wine has sinewy energy, displaying a fine line of acidity that carries the freshness and minerality to the end of the lithe palate. Elegant yet textural, there is great tension in the wine, which has a lifted floral white tea note on its finish
