Outstanding Langtons Classification. A national flagship, from fruit grown to the stately Wallcliffe property, one of the most distinguished vineyards in Australia. For over thirty years, the finest blocks of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon have been devotedly husbanded to yield harvests of fruit with remarkable concentration of flavour and polished, elegant tannins. The style has evolved over time, defining an articulate Cabernet wine of pristine varietal virtue, true opulence, intensity of fruit character and personable Margaret River charm.
Cape Mentelle Vineyard was planted in 1970 and 1972 on a ridge of free draining, lateritic gravel, at an east west row orientation to minimise the affects of strong westerly sea breezes. Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested by hand and individually sorted, berry by berry. Fruit is destemmed and lightly crushed. Individual batches are fermented on skins for up to a month. At the desired balance of extraction, each batch is gently basket pressed, harder pressings are put aside and wines are racked to a high selection of new Bordeaux coopered oak barriques for malolactic. Regular rackings over the course of eighteen months ensure all components are worthy of inclusion into the final assemblage. Alcohol 13.5%
TASTING NOTES
Dark red colour. Classic blackcurrant, bay leaf and tar bouquet amidst hints of lavender bush, elderflower and black mulberries. Finely textured palate, full flavoured and abundant with blackcurrants, hints of cocoa and graphite. The finish is tight and minerally with long and harmonious tannins. Ideally suited to rare roasted saddle of venison, dressed with the finest red wine jus.
