The winemaker from Cape Mentelle was touring through TX and stopped by Classic Wine Storage for a quick tasting.

This was served too cold at first. It was like biting in to an underripe Granny Smith Apple. Lots of tartness with a touch of sweetness. Grapefruit and melon showed up after it warmed in the glass. Finish rounded out too.

This is a wine that I didn’t like at the first sip but after few minutes of aeration it completely changed for good, a nice citric finish, no excessively sweet...

Smells of acidy grass and melon.
Sharper than anticipated, tastes like yellow and a little citrus. Finishes out without a punch. Not a lot of body.

Impressive, Bordeaux-like quality for $12. A bargain.

15/20 (85/100) Овощные тона преобладают в аромате: зелёный перец, кабачки, зелёный горошек; есть немного лимонного сока и нота смородинового листа. Высокая кислотность, водянистость во вкусе. Простой, свежий купаж на основе совиньона.

Bright with great balance. The Semillion really tempers the acidity and tartness is the Sauv Blanc, while adding a bit of pleasant weight. Really wish I could get my hands on more Margaret River wines. Also, reminds me that patio white season is right around the corner!

Really fun blend. Gets a bit of creaminess and interesting notes from the semillon but is still very much a Sav Blanc wine. Very subtle depth on the flavors with a great acid kick. Hard to find for me but Margaret river never misses.
