Winemaker Notes
The 2017 Cape Mentelle Shiraz/Cabernet is a deep dark garnet with purple edges. The aromatics are complex and enticing; dark forest berry fruit, black cherry, black currant with orange marmalade and intense smoked charcuterie. Finer nuances of flint and jasmin blossom entwine with leather and tobacco undertones combining with licorice and cardamom notes. The palate is rich and powerful displaying plum, cranberry and ripe black forest berry fruits of mulberry and blackberry overlaying cured charcuterie and smoked peppercorns elements. Oak tones of vanilla, licorice and clove interlace with red earthy notes, hints of black truffle and forest floor. The tannins are silky and round with great volume and length.
The savory complexity of this wine matches very well with a rich casserole of root vegetables which could include spring lamb or spiced chickpeas. Alternatively a pepper seasoned ribeye steak with slow roasted new potatoes and grilled corn pairs superbly with it or even a simple dish of slow roasted eggplant and zucchini with smoked paprika can tantalise the tastebuds..

James Suckling 92
Plums and sweet tobacco with some wet earth on the nose and palate. It shows a vivid and bright palate with very fine tannins and a crisp and long finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
