Bright, fragrant and with good acidity. Wine has a double soul, reminiscent of the two forces that give life to the terroir: the earth and the ocean. While the freshness of the ocean is expressed through Sauvignon Blanc, the consistency of Semillon is reminiscent of the earth. The style accentuates the fruity and fresh nature of both grape varieties, to which are added the greater complexity.

Cape Mentelle - Leading Australia Margaret River Winery
It was established in 1970 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. Wine industry pioneer David Hohnen and his brothers Mark and Giles established cape Mentelle vineyards in 1970. Our phenomenal Cape Mentelle journey started small with just 16 hectares of vines planted on what is now referred to as the Wwallcliffe vineyard’. In the early years David Hohnen experimented with grape varieties including Shiraz, Cabernet, Zinfandel, Sauvignon blanc and Semillon. Many of these original plantings are the source of the distinctive wines that have come to characterize cape Mentelle. The winery’s flagship cabernet sauvignon is sourced primarily from the original Wallcliffe vineyard. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s wine making at Cape Mentelle was characterized by experimentation to improve quality, the character of the grape varieties and the special attributes of the regional terroir are part of the style that evolved. The area under vine increased with the establishment of the 23 hectares Trinders vineyard in 1988 followed by the chapman brook vineyard in the early 1990’s Today Cape Mentelle, as part of estates & wines (owned by Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton), continues to build on its solid foundations.
