Cape Mentelle Cabernet Merlot
Margaret river, Australia
The blend of 63% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 5% petit verdot, 2% cabernet franc is inspired by the classic red wines from Bordeaux. Made from almost the entire Bordeaux palette, this wine is a challenger to the famous Bordeaux classics, and has the right balance between accentuated and soft red varieties. The vicinity of the Pacific replaces the vicinity of the Atlantic, and the ancient, pristine piece of land replaces the famous Bordeaux appellation. Seductiveness of black elegance and softness of tannins.
