Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
"What a wine for the cellar"

Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Beef/Steak Venison Lamb
  • One of the Margaret River's great Cabernets, from some of the oldest vines in the region
  • 96/100 (James Halliday), 96/100 (James Suckling), 95/100 (Gary Walsh), 94/100 (Ray Jordan)
  • "What a wine for the cellar" (James Suckling)
  • Massive cellaring potential of 25-30 years!

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 Cabernets are often benchmarked against top Bordeaux from France and this is their ultimate expression of a single vineyard wine crafted from mature, low yielding vines which are actually some of the oldest in the Margaret River!

Make no mistake - this is world class Cabernet that could kick it with the very best! It has a screed of top scores from the cream of the crop of wine writers, American critic James Suckling scored it a whopping 96/100 and said "Full body, velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Very agile at the same time. Energy. What a wine for the cellar.."

This is a wine for the serious Cabernet lover or those that are right into cellaring wine for the long term - this has potential to go for 25-30 years!

Good wine like this is made to be enjoyed with Master Chef quality grub. We recommend roasted rack of lamb, parsnips, carrots and rosemary served on Paris mash with a Cabernet jus.

The lowdown: 14% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
