Earthy, dusty with supporting blackberries on the nose. Medium plus body with a nice savoury tannic note. Black cherries and cabernet driven menthol flavours pointing to its maritime origins. Represents good value for money. Currently on special at Dan Murphy’s in their cellar release listings.
Cape Mentelle Trinders Cabernet Merlot 2013, Margaret River, WA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
