Appearance: Pale straw with green hues. Nose: Aromas of white melon, lime, grapefruit, honeysuckle, blackcurrant and a hint of chalk dust. Palate: Juicy clean and fresh with talcy pithy structure balancing the rich fruit flavours of limes, passionfruit and lychee. The texture is creamy and the finish bright, intense, long and elegant. A perfect partnership with handmade fettuccine and basil pesto with grilled chicken tenderloins. Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distinctive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered by a small portion of barrel fermentation. 58% Sauvignon Blanc, 42% Semillon.
