From select vintages, our Cape Mentelle Wallcliffe red blend showcases the exceptional affinity of our terroirs with the classic grape varieties. We look to produce a true celebration of each vintage and present the best possible parcels from each vintage year. Explore our diverse and surprising Margaret River terroir with Cape Mentelle Wallcliffe red blend.

Nose
On the nose, top notes of juicy cranberries and red fruit compote from our best old vines of Cabernet Franc marry with comforting warm spices and hints of applewood smoke to invite the first sip. Intense and complex, the core aromas are of black tea, prunes, juniper berries and sweet cinnamon.
Palate
Deep and dark, this medium bodied wine takes you from plum pudding and nutmeg to a smoky and silky mid-palate. The wine is generous, round, intense and open for its age; with notes of dried flowers, chocolate, coffee and pipe tobacco. The oak frames the wine without austerity, leading to a long velvety finish.
Blend
Cabernet Sauvignon 54%, Cabernet Franc 38%, Merlot 5%, Shiraz 3%
Cellaring
While 2014 produced generous and open wines which can easily be enjoyed in their youth, we expect patience will be rewarded with a cellaring potential of 10+ years.
Food Pairing Notes
The richness and openness of this wine will accompany any slow cooked meat dish and will complement a touch of sweetness. We recommend slow cooked pork with honey and herbs, fillet of venison with truffle mash or a simple homemade eggplant parmigiana on fresh pasta.
