Cape Mentelle Shiraz 2021


This is surely one of the very best examples of Shiraz made in Margaret River in this vintage. Fifteen months maturing in oak, which included 21% new French and Hungarian oak. A dark crimson magenta colour. The vintage imbues it with a more earthy, more undergrowth nature, but there are also notes of chocolate, cloves, cold tea and leather. There is refinement here, along with the power. This wine is very much a savoury style, with impressive length and sleek tannins showing good concentration for the entire length. This should continue to perform well over the next eight to fifteen years.
