Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2021
Cape Mentelle takes a non-interventionist approach towards this classic Margaret River blend allowing the region and varieties to speak with loud, clear voices, aiming to preserve fruit intensity and purity. The style accentuates the fresh, vibrant fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered through several months of aging on lees; the land and ocean vividly expressed.
Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2021 vintage pairs wonderfully with grilled halibut dressed with lemongrass and ginger, or accentuates the savoury richness of a goat cheese soufflé. Or simply pair with a ripened brie oozing with creaminess.
Drink for freshness in the first 24 months but it can age gracefully for four plus years.
