CAPE MENTELLE SAUVIGNON BLANC SEMILLON 2017
Appearance: Bright and shiny, white gold with silver hues.
Nose: The nose is a perfect painting of our Margaret River surroundings - a patch of ancient earth surrounded by vast oceans where fresh, crisp saline scents of the sauvignon blanc meld with the earthy unctuosity of the semillon. The nose is intense with nuances of yellow peach, rockmelon, passionfruit, lemon zest and juniper berry aromas, topped by a hint of white pepper corn.
Palate: The first approach is very fresh with excellent vibrancy and tension, developing into citrus and melon characters. The wine is then textural and unctuous, ending with a long, zesty finish accompanied by a line of minerality that brings us back to the ocean cliffs and Margaret River mouth.
Food pairing: Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon will be your best friend with a platter of freshly shucked oysters, ideally served alongside a water view. The winemakers also recommend it with pacific or atlantic salmon with a gingersoy dressing and Asian greens or pink snapper with beurre blanc and a summer salad.
