Margaret River, South West Australia

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Shiraz 2010

Deep crimson in colour. Noticeable oak and spice on nose. Medium to full bodied. Red and black fruits on palate- plum and blueberry notes sadly dominated by the Oak. As mentioned in other posts I believe Margaret River is much better suited to Cabernet and blends rather than Shiraz - no better exemplified than the 2 offerings from this well performed winery - Cape Mentelle. — 12 days ago

Siblings Margaret River Shiraz 2017

Ok whaaaaaat?!? This is a Shiraz? It’s...downright elegant! The nose is like a warm summer sunset of pluots and just ripe berries a hint of spices, good aroma that matches with a luscious mouthfeel delicate tannins and a juicy, stony finish. Would crush the shit out of this. — 21 days ago

Emily Merlot Blend 2010

To clarify the Delectable description this is actually Cabernet Franc dominant. This is Woodlands take on a Right Bank blend being 47% Cabernet Franc, 39% Merlot; 11% Malbec; 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot. Aromas of Black Currant, vanilla Oak, some violet, Capsicum Mulberry and steeped black Tea. Medium bodied - black currant and medium minus black tea tannins. Medium intensity. An honest effort and reasonable QPR at about $40. Drink last one later this year. — a month ago
