Cape Mentelle Shiraz

To achieve delicate perfume and bright, crunchy fruit vibrancy while upholding depth and determination is a red winemaking dream rarely realised as emphatically as this. Radiant elegance of crunchy red and dark berry/cherry/plum fruit meets layers of spice, pepper and pretty, lifted rose petal fragrance. The mouth feel is finely textured and impeccably poised, infused with great precision and potential. $30 at Vinus, United Cellars, Wine List Australia, WineStar, Aussie Wines and No Frills Wine (2011).
