Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018
Tasting note & Product Review
Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is an excellent combination of luscious and juicy fruit while still retaining elegance. There are some yummy passionfruit, papaya and citrus flavours on the palate. A squeeze of Tahitian lime juice and gorgeous acid make this wine oh so good to drink. Impressive on its own or pair with crayfish, yabbies or Thai dishes.
Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is the white wine Cape Mentelle is most famous for, an Aussie favourite almost from the first vintage in the mid-1980s when the winemaker first decided to make white wine. The fruit comes from the winemaker’s original Wallcliffe vineyard, and the wine is rightly regarded as one of the finest in the Margaret River for complexity and deliciousness. When James Halliday awards a wine 97 points as he did the 2016 vintage, you know you’ll be serving something people will remember.
