Cape Mentelle

Cape Mentelle is one of the pioneering wineries being the third to set up shop in the region. It is also famous for winning the highly prized Jimmy Watson trophy back to back in 1983 and 1984. The people behind Cape Mentelle also helped set-up the just as famous Cloudy Bay winery in New Zealand.
Our host guided us through the range of wines. His knowledge was excellent and begins by showing the group how to get the most out of a wine tasting experience by swirling the wine around in the glass as this increases the surface area of the wine and releases the aromas. Cape Mentelle has a great range of wine to try, but for me I really like the Viognier and their dessert style Botrytis Viognier. We could have spent hour’s here learning from the staff, but we were already running late for the next winery.
