Cape Mentelle takes a minimal approach towards this classic Margaret River blend. The aim is to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible, whilst providing a full flavoured distinctive white wine. The style accentuates the fresh fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered by a small portion of barrel fermentation.

Punchy lifted aromatics of lemon blossom, blackcurrant and papaya with subtle hints of fresh thyme and cordite.

The lion’s share of the fruit came from the cooler southern half of the region, including our Chapman Brook Vineyard along with our other estate and selected contract vineyards. Various canopy management methods are used, with the objective being to maximise fruit flavour development. The typical soils of these vineyards are geologically ancient, free draining sandy loams with a high percentage of lateritic gravel.

The 2011 harvest in Margaret River was warm, dry and early and continues an excellent run of recent vintages. Warm nights in February accelerated ripening and sauvignon blanc was harvested quickly in late February with abundant flavour and richness resulting in full flavoured wines with great texture and refreshing acidity.

When harvesting sauvignon blanc and semillon the emphasis is placed on capturing vibrant fresh flavours with clean acidity. Fruit is harvested at night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with around 15% of the blend fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French Oak Barriques. The wine was assembled after four months on lees and bottled in July 2011

51% sauvignon blanc, 49% semillon
