Established in 1970 by wine industry pioneer David Hohnen, Cape Mentelle was one of margaret river's "founding five" wineries. The Cape Mentelle style draws inspiration from traditional methods to produce a wine displaying aromatic complexity & a fine textured palate with a long, clean finish.
Cape Mentelle Chardonnay 2018 is golden hay with a hint of fresh green. Powerful and complex displaying ripe pineapple, poached apple, frangipane and fresh cream aromas, with a honeyed richness highlighted by oak notes of fresh cedar and toasted hazelnuts on notes. The palate is smothered with round ripe flavours of Fuji apple, dried mango, and wild rice pudding that is both creamy and unctuous. A complex array of fresh cashew, lemon peel, raw macadamia and nectarine notes flesh out this texturally expansive wine to complete this captivating expression of Margaret River chardonnay.
