Cape Mentelle

Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012

Margaret River; blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc; so rounded, so peachy almost possible to detect varietal traits, so the blending is impeccable; streamline of juicy, minty, contained but delectable fruit flavours, wood plays little influence as does tannin; makes it more gulpable for masses; no tannin backbone, just juicy softness; #newwave #drinkaussie #drinkwa #westernaustralia #margaretriver #capementelle #wilyabrup #cmf #AUD50 #13.5% ; Wilyabrup is a sub-region of Margaret River known for top cabernet; interesting way to name a wine. — 4 years ago

Chardonnay 2009

Wow; how maturing #margaretriver #chardonnay does vary; see recent #cullen #2009 which was brassy, this gleaming green and plenty of it; #cullen restrained, this #capementelle is butch; nose power of smoke or burnt things, bottle age nose not simple, evidence of lees/ mlf from the smoke; palate chunky, lime juice, burnt toast you taste in 30 yo Eden Valley riesling; juicy smoke; rich, not terribly drying, acid taut, 13%, AUD 35, full bodied, no apparent reason for it to fade for a while; contained power. #uncorkedandcultivated #wineandfoodtours — 4 years ago
