Established in 1970 by Mark and David Hoehnen, Cape Mentelle was one of the first Margaret River wineries and helped to cement the region’s reputation as one of the world’s great areas for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Today Cape Mentelle is part of the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey Group and continues to serves as a benchmark for quality wine, especially local staples Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, with some quality wines also seen from Shiraz, Sangiovese and Zinfandel. With winemaking now overseen by the highly capable Robert Mann, it appears Cape Mentelle is certainly in good hands.
Cape Mentelle Philosophy
In the words of winemaker, Robert Mann, “Cape Mentelle wines reflect the unique sense of place of Margaret River in their freshness, fruit purity and vibrancy of character.”

Yet another value wine from Cape Mentelle in the form of this bonny little savvy. Scents of apples, lemon zest, herbs and florals waft out of the glass, whilst the palate is fresh and frisky with tropical flavours, zippy acidity, and a dry, lip sm...
