Cape Mentelle

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
"Outstanding" (Cabernet Sauvignon) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV

"As one of Margaret River’s ‘founding five’ wineries, Cape Mentelle pioneered many of the region’s renowned wine styles and today is a benchmark for the quality of the region’s wines... Cape Mentelle Vineyards, established by David and Mark Hohnen and now part of the Moet Hennessy Wine Estates, is a specialist producer of premium wines in Margaret River in the south west corner of Western Australia. One of the country's finest wine regions, Margaret River enjoys a maritime location, with the added advantage of a long dry growing season.Cape Mentelle was one of the first vineyards established in the Margaret River region. First planted in 1970, there are today over 90 hectares under vine and the winery, constructed in 1977, crushes about 1,000 tonnes of fruit from estate vineyards and contract grown fruit sourced from within the region. Primary plantings are of cabernet sauvignon, semillon and sauvignon blanc with smaller amounts of shiraz, zinfandel, merlot and chardonnay." - Cape Mentelle

"...Cape Mentelle is one of those knocking on the door of the Winery of the Year Award." - James Halliday

    Wine Front 95 Points! "Made from 42-year-old, low-yielding zinfandel vines. I can’t recall a Cape Mentelle Zinfandel that I have enjoyed more. It has the kavorka. It lures you in and makes you desperate to drink more, or that’s my excuse. It tastes of...
