One of the leading wineries of Western Australia's Margaret River region, Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon has firmly established itself as a benchmark example of this signature Margaret River blend. Cape Mentelle takes a non-interventionist approach towards this classic Margaret River blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon, preserving much fruit intensity and regional character.
The 2019 Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon delivers a fresh, distinctive blend that accentuates the unique character of both varieties. Meticulous winemaking preserves the remarkable intensity of fruit flavour and provides the structure, weight and texture that characterise the Cape Mentelle style.
"93 Points. 58/42% sauvignon blanc/ semillon, largely tank fermented with a small component matured in neutral oak, 4 months on lees. A cool vintage in '19 and this low alcohol indicates an earlier pick, too. The palate here is textbook Margaret River SBS blend; snow pea, white currant, green apple skin and jasmine florals. Zingy, mouth-watering acid. Clove bud and white pepper laced through the finish. 12.3% alc. $26. Drink by: 2024. Screwcap"- Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
Wine industry pioneer David Hohnen and brothers Mark and Giles established Cape Mentelle Vineyards in 1970. The Cape Mentelle journey started small with just 16 hectares of vines planted on what is now referred to as the ‘Wallcliffe Vineyard’. In the early years David Hohnen experimented with grape varieties including shiraz, cabernet, zinfandel, sauvignon blanc and semillon. Many of these original plantings are the source of the distinctive wines that have come to characterise Cape Mentelle. The winery’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced primarily from the original Wallcliffe Vineyard.
Cape Mentelle unashamedly draw inspiration from the great wines of the world; this is reflected in the techniques employed in the vineyard as they aim to produce wines that capture a unique sense of place in every bottle. These characteristics are defined by the pristine coastal location, unique soils and 40 years of viticultural history.
Cape Mentelle's philosophy extends beyond the glass as they endeavour to create a legacy of sustainability and longevity. Constantly improving the potential of their vineyards and local environments, they are committed to paving the way for the next generation to continue the pursuit of crafting Australia's definitive wine styles.
