Cape Mentelle Cabernet Merlot Trinders 2012




The Cabernet Merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux. Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for outstanding Bordeaux varietal and blended wines which are perfectly suited to the climate and soils of Margaret River. This blend seeks to capture the depth and structure of cabernet with the dark fruit and plush flavours of merlot, which when blended create a well- rounded, full and rich style.

Appearance
Bright crimson with purple hues.
Nose
Fresh blackcurrant, plum skin, violets, couverture, wild thyme and rolled tobacco.
Palate
Medium to full bodied with sweet ripe fruits of currants and plums with wild herbs and violets. The structure is firm yet velvety providing great length and intensity of flavour.
