Cape Mentelle Margaret River Shiraz 2015

  • £18.95



Cape Mentelle Shiraz draws inspiration from the techniques and wines of the Northern Rhône Valley in France. The fruit is destemmed, berry sorted, cold soaked and traditionally fermented. Maturation in both large oak vats and small barriques is aimed at retaining the refined fruit, floral and spice characters of the variety.




APPEARANCE

Inky with purple hues.

NOSE

Complex and vibrant brambly blueberry, red currants, all spice, schezuan pepper and a touch of fruit.

PALATE

Plush and rich with juicy bright fruits of plums, and mulberry complemented by hints of spice. The full flavoured palate is richly textured balanced by a long fine and spicy finish.
