CAPE MENTELLE Shiraz, Margaret River 2003

An elegant medium-bodied spicy style, Cape Mentelle Shiraz typically shows plummy mulberry fruit, floral spice notes and supple polished tannins. Made in a style inspired by the wines of the Northern Rhone, the fruit is de-stemmed, sorted, cold soaked and traditionally fermented. Each parcel of grapes is fermented separately and kept on skins for up to 15 days. Following pressing, the batches are racked to barriques and large oak for 14 months. The separate cuvées are matured in barriques of which 20% were new, before being blended and bottled.

Region Margaret River

Margaret River Located three hours south of Perth, Margaret River is Western Australia’s most prestigious wine-growing region. Serious vineyard development began only in the late 1960’s following the publication of a report by John Gladstones in 1965 stating that the area had a similar climate to Pomerol or St Emilion, with low frost risk, plenty of sunshine and equable temperatures within the growing season promoting even ripening. Margaret River’s climate is warm and maritime, with some cooling influence provided by southeast trade winds. The soils derive from granitic and a gneissic rock over which laterite has formed. The region can be divided in three sub-regions: the cooler south between Yallingup and Karridale with predominantly lateritic gravelly loamy sands and sandy loams; the warm and sunnier Willyabrup in the centre with predominantly gravelly loams, but some gritty sandy loams and granitic gravels; and Margaret River in the north with similar soils, but slightly cooler tem

This is entirely consistent with style; the wines from Willyabrup being more generous than the highly structured wines of the north and the elegant styles of the south. Margaret River is best known for high quality Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blends and top notch Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux blends. Over the years, the region has established an astonishing reputation illustrating a consistency in quality and a strongly focused winemaking culture.
