Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Definitive Margaret River SBS of laser-like precision, sensational restraint and beautifully defined acidity. An elegant and fragrant bouquet of lemon blossom glides into a taut, honed palate that zones in on lime zest, crunchy granny smith apples and electric acidity. One-tenth fermented in barrels does nothing to interrupt its purity, but builds drive and longevity. Line and length carry with unwavering determination. Its street price makes this one of the best value sauvignons on the shelves right now. $18 at Nicks, Aussie Wines, No Frills, Wine List Australia and Cellar6.
