Cape Mentelle Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc 2022


Another fine vintage in Margaret River has provided us with an excellent release of this elite Savvy, with fruit sourced from their two southern-most vineyards. It spent time in top-notch French oak, 4% new, as well as stainless steel and concrete eggs, with eleven months on lees. Open the screwcap and the room is flooded with aromas of peaches and tropical fruits. The colour is a gleaming yellow with flecks of gold. The nose is redolent with guava, paw paw, mango and those juicy peaches. A minerally backing with crunchy acidity topped by good length. Expect the wine to provide pleasure for the next half dozen years, becoming even more complex over that period.
