Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Cape Mentelle Shiraz draws inspiration from the techniques and wines of France's Northern Rhône Valley. The fruit is 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.

The nose is open and varietal with notes of black plum, applewood smoke and cracked pepper. Hints of cardamom and vanilla pods make the aromas very enticing. On the palate, vibrant fresh plum accompanies roasted black fruit notes, supported by a good structure of smoky tannins, still youthful and peppery and full body throughout. The oak is sweet but structuring and the finish already shows good length, promising to improve with age.


94/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​Margaret River shiraz. Fermented on skins for 15 days. Matured in Burgundian oak, some of it large format, 20% of it new. From a warm vintage. It’s an excellent shiraz. It grows in the glass beautifully. It hasn’t been pushed too hard, it’s not in your face, it almost sneaks up on you, and yet the flavour is all there. It tastes of plums and peppercorns, woodsmoke and black cherries. It’s satiny throughout and yet the curl of tannin is there; it builds in the background. Textbook in all ways."


91/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review (2014 Vintage)
"Very deep red/purple, youthful colour. The bouquet is smoky, oaky and charcuterie-like, with underlying ripe berries. On the palate, it's intense and firm, lively and lean-ish, with a touch of astringency, and a substantial after-grip. It already drinks well."


4 Stars Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"The cool climate of Western Australia’s Margaret River nurtures some wonderful wines. This fine example from a renowned producer offers spicy aromatics and a palate that exudes juicy sweet fruit charm. The tannins are well-defined. Oak is certainly a feature and was discussed by the panel, the consensus being that balance has been maintained."
