Cape Mentelle Trinders Cabernet Merlot
"Oh boy, does this hit the mark"

Cape Mentelle Trinders Cabernet Merlot

2014, Western Australia Australia

Beef/Steak Venison Lamb
  • Cabernet blend from one of the Margaret River's shining stars
  • "Oh boy, does this hit the mark of an affordable red wine" (The West Australian Wine Guide 2017)
  • Medium to full bodied red with plush, juicy dark fruits and soft tannins

One of the shining stars of the Margaret River region in Western Australia! Brothers David, Mark and Giles Hohnen formed Cape Mentelle (funnily enough named after the nearby cape with the same name) in 1970 and in 1985 started Cloudy Bay in Marlborough, making Mentelle a little bit of a big brother to NZ's own Cloudy Bay.

Mentelle's Cabernet and Cabernet blends are often benchmarked against top Bordeaux from France and the Trinders Cabernet Merlot blend (named after the Trinders vineyard it's produced from) is a real icon.

The West Australian Wine Guide got very giddy in writing up their review of this '14 vintage Trinders - "Oh boy, does this hit the mark of an affordable red wine. So well-structured with leafy blackburrant cabernet fruit superb, plus a palate-filling dollop of merlot completing a most elegant and stylish palate."

Definitely one to try now with a few tucked away in the cellar for future slurping, a good 10-15 years ought to do it.

A medium to full bodied red with plush, juicy dark fruits and soft tannins and a trademark herby element sometimes found in these wines. Absolutely delicious, a class act.

The lowdown: 14% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
