Cape Mentelle

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

Kevin John Margaret River Chardonnay 2011

Excellent, excellent international chardonnay; restraint but the high-toned expected aromatics cleverly crafted; meal, funk, naturalness, citrus, neat on the nose; palate matured more; brulee, nut roast, yum portion, best aspect is the citrus acid softness; #drinknow ; but window is 2013-2017. #cullen #wa #margaretriver #kevinjohn #chardonnay #biodynamic #13point5alc — 4 years ago

Probably at its delectable best; this #margaretriver #chardonnay from #cullen ; colour with bits of brass says so; and palate has nice brulee-roast nuts; more aged fruit aromas than first stage types; acid taut keeping it medium bodied and no more; a good drink with coral trout; #kevinjohn #biodynamic #13.5% #AUD105 — 4 years ago
