Robert Parker (RP) : 87 Points (2018)
A 55-45 blend, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon features scents of green peas, fresh herbs and citrus juice on the nose. With only 5% of this light to medium-bodied wine seeing oak, it's a linear, slightly austere effort that finishes with flavors of tart grapefruit.

James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2017)
Attractive fresh herbs with lemon citrus and gentle aromas of tropical fruit. The palate has a vibrant, tangy edge with lime and fresh grassy flavors. A bright, crunchy finish.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2016)
This is Cape Mentelle's biggest selling wine in the U.S., and one taste makes it clear why. It's got some of the herbal and passion fruit notes of Sauvignon Blanc, balanced by the strong citrus of Semillon. It's clean, crisp and long on the finish, with a lightly silky texture that lingers. Drink now.

James Halliday (JH) : 93 Points (2015)
In the groove. Lemongrass, citrus and gravel-like flavours. Plenty of body, intensity and texture but forever lively. In short, it delivers.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2015)
The lime and grapefruit flavors are intense, crisp and refreshing, with plenty of thyme and parsley accents. Drink now.

Cape Mentelle Shiraz takes inspiration from the most traditional techniques in order to highlight our ideal temperate, maritime climate for this classic Australian variety. The fruit is partially destemmed, berry sorted, cold soaked and traditionally fermented. Maturation in small barriques is aimed at retaining the refined fruit and floral characters of the variety along with the more savoury, spicy elements derived from our vineyards in Margaret River.
