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. The style accentuates the fresh, vibrant fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered through several months of aging on lees; the land and ocean vividly expressed.

The fruit was sourced from the Chapman Brook (71%) and Crossroads (29%) Vineyards, where cool night time temperatures preserve natural acidity and aromatics. Vibrancy, varietal expression and site specific characteristics are created through careful canopy manipulation. The vineyard team is tasked with delivering whole berries to the winery in optimal condition. To achieve this, fruit was harvested in the cool of the night to capture purity and elegance.

A bright pale straw colour with brilliant green edges. This wine displays aromas of green apple skin, lifted orange blossom and green papaya, with hints of passionfruit, white peach and nectarine. There are notes of rose petal and honeysuckle, with subtle honeydew melon and grapefruit elements.

On the palate intense flavours of ripe apple, juicy lemon, and lemon curd tart provide good weight and length with a creamy texture showing ample width. This well-framed wine displays hints of ginger and honey, plus honeydew melon notes with a green line of refreshing acidity running the length of the palate

This wine pairs wonderfully with grilled halibut dressed with lemongrass and ginger, or accentuates the savoury richness of a goat cheese soufflé. Or simply pair with a ripened brie oozing with creaminess.
