The 2022 release of the Cape Mentelle Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc has a pale straw colour with brilliant green edges. Intense aromas of fresh lime, Granny Smith apple, green melon and gooseberry entice with a touch of jasmine, citrus blossom and passionfruit. On the palate this medium weight wine has mineral elegance and is juicy with light straw and lemongrass notes. With a silex mineral drive, great tension and a hint of a saline edge, it is layered with good texture yet punchy with a citrus peel finish.

Winery & Vintage Info

Driven by a desire to explore their extensive cool climate Sauvignon Blanc sources, Cape Mentelle created this small blend from some of our finest parcels to illuminate the fruit purity and varietal expression of their special sites. A wine of tension and drive, it demanded its own bottling, providing immediate enjoyment, or rewarding careful cellaring.

The fruit was sourced from our Chapman Brook (81%) and Crossroads (19%) 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.

The cool fruit was de-stemmed, crushed and rapidly pressed using our pneumatic presses to capture vibrant fruit characters with minimal tannin and colour pick up. The juice was either cold settled or underwent flotation (a rapid lees separation technique using inert gas) and cool fermentation began using a selected yeast to accentuate fresh fruity varietal characteristics. Stainless tank ferment proceeded to dryness with individual batches resting on lees for two months. Once assembled, the final blend was minimally fined and filtered to capture bright vibrancy before being estate bottled.

Delicious with scallop ceviche and green mango chilli dressing or grilled cod tacos with a side of Japanese cabbage and cucumber salad. Or simply enjoyed with fresh oysters and a meyer lemon drizzle.
