Established in 1970, Cape Mentelle is one of the founding wineries of Margaret River. Today, Cape Mentelle is a benchmark for the quality of the region’s wines. Building on the winery’s tradition of pioneering spirits and uncompromising commitment to excellence, an innovative winemaking team is taking up the challenge to make Australia’s best wines.
Cape Mentelle Rosé is a fresh, vibrant expression of the traditional dry rosé style. A combination of direct pressing and saignée methods deliver delicate, fresh aromas and colour. Framed by generous fruit and a refreshing acidity, it makes for a perfect summer beverage to be shared with friends
On the nose, it is full of melon rind, fresh strawberries and watermelon intertwined with white peaches. A pronounced minerality is driven by accents of wet sharpening stone and lifted white blossoms.
The palate is fresh and concentrated with a crisp attack, yet with a complex textural edge that defines the Cape Mentelle style. There is a great depth of flavours, with notes reminiscent of rose petals, lilac, red currants, ripe Meyer lemon, jasmine and cassis tea, finishing with a touch of whipped cream and pink peppercorn.
This wine is a perfect match for a summer grazing board with your best friends, satay chicken with Asian vegetables and red chilies or fresh local sashimi.
