As one of Margaret River’s ‘founding five’ wineries,
Cape Mentelle pioneers many of the region’s renowned wine styles
since 1970, and today is a benchmark for the quality of the region’s wines.

A bold pioneer in this unexplored yet perfect winemaking region,
Cape Mentelle is a place that rewards determination and character.  
In 1983 Cape Mentelle won the coveted Jimmy Watson Memorial Award for the best one year old dry red wine,
and cemented its position as a premium wine maker with another win in 1984.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is now widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading cabernets.

With pristine beaches, crystal-clear water and abundant seafood,
the Cape Mentelle region has always been a place to enjoy the coastal lifestyle.
The ideal combination of maritime climate and ironstone soil has been instrumental in creating elegant,
refined, balanced wines with extraordinary fruit intensity – which are celebrated the world over.
Area: Margaret River, Australia Foundation: 1970



    Taking a minimalist approach towards this classis Margaret River blend, we aim to preserve as much fruit intensity and regional character as possible while providing a full-flavoured, distinctive white wine. Vibrant freshness from the sea, aromatic complexity of the grapes, this typical Margaret River wine has become one of the most praised wine in Australia for a relaxing evening.

    "The wine has complex aromas and flavours, so much so that you might wonder whether if a small percentage was barrel fermented, until the clarity of the mouthfeel disposes of that idea. Two rivulets of flavour run happily along the palate, one with lemon citrus flavours, the other with green apple and gooseberry, tied together by crunchy acidity on the finish"

    This Cape Mentelle Chardonnay style draws inspiration from the most traditional Burgundian methods to produce a wine displaying aromatic complexity and a fine, textured palate with a long, rich finish. Our chardonnay is made to go from aperitif to cheeseboard and is perfect for cellar ageing. Harmony of intense citrus, apricot, toast and hazelnuts flavors in the firmly closed tastes presents wonderful rich complexity.

    "Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented. Gleaming straw-green: takes a millisecond for its flavour mass to reach every corner of the mouth. Has gained further complexity since first tasted March 2019, grapefruit zest joining white fleshed stone fruit. 14.5% alc. Screwcap. Drink to 2030."

    Seeking to capture the depth and structure of Cabernet with the plummy flavours of Merlot, this blend gets inspiration from the classic Bordeaux red wines. The structure is fine with grapey soft tannins providing great length and intensity of favour balanced by a subtle mix of roasted spices. Medium to full bodied with sweet ripe fruits of mulberry, plums and currants it is better enjoyed with a group of friends.

    "Plenty of chocolate, walnut and hazelnut character to the currant and plum flavors. Medium to full body. Round tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold."

    Cape Mentelle’s Shiraz takes 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.

    "There's a curious dusty licorice edge to the bouquet and an echo of the same on the medium to full-bodied palate. There are no repercussions on the texture or structure, and this is, after all, a screwcapped bottle"

    This is the flagship wine of Cape Mentelle, the finest expression of our winemaking philosophy, a legendary, award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon since 1982. Classic aroma and beautifully framed structure with perfect tannin. A masterpiece Cabernet Sauvignon to represent Australia and taking you far away from the usual Bordeaux or Californian Cabernet Sauvignon.

    "The skill and attention to detail of the viticultural team are the reason for the purity and singularity of this beautiful cabernet. Blackcurrant/cassis fruit, spicy/earthy undertones and perfectly ripened tannins stand guard over the fruit. The oak is subtle but carefully orchestrated. 14% alc. Cork. Drink to 2051"
