Cape Mentelle Trinders Cabernet Merlot 2016 (6 x 750mL), Margaret River.

RRP $31

$25.99 per Bottle

The Cabernet Merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux. Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for these varieties that 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 flavors of Merlot, small minor amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc complement the blend for a well-rounded, full and rich style with balance.

This Cabernet Merlot will pair well with a flame-grilled porterhouse steak with mustards or just a simple eggplant ragout over fresh pasta.

Expert Reviews

So often a good wine, and in many respects, I prefer it to its Big Brother.

This is pretty much spot on for a drink now (or later) Margaret Cabernet. Dark fruit, iodine and earth savoury edges, subtle vanilla oak and floral perfume. It’s medium bodied, supple and even in texture, with a density and presence, not least super drinking appeal that sets it above the pack. Oh, and the length is good too, with grainy tannin and fragrance lingering. Rating 94 - Gary Walsh, Wine Front Feb 2019 Drink to 2026

Winery Tasting Notes

APPEARANCE

Young deep garnet red.

NOSE

The nose opens with classic varietal aromas of red berry compote, dark plums, and cherries in alcohol with hints of herbs and fresh tobacco leaves. All come to play with notes of caramelised oak and cedar.

PALATE

Elegant, with aromas of sweet cherries and blackberries. Silky but structured with hints of cracked peppercorn, licorice, vanilla and light smoke from the oak with a Black Forest cake finish.

Up to 12 years.
