Reviews for 2008 Cape Mentelle Chardonnay Margaret River

JH 96
James Halliday - James Halliday, February 2009
Has exceptional structure and mouth-feel; the citrus and nectarine fruit is vibrant and there is a streak of minerality running through the wine; oak is present but not at all intrusive

Elegant artful and harmonious this very contemporary chardonnay has a nutty mealy bouquet of melon grapefruit nectarine and white peaches lifted by a scent of white flowers and backed by funky lightly meaty creamy... Elegant artful and harmonious this very contemporary chardonnay has a nutty mealy bouquet of melon grapefruit nectarine and white peaches lifted by a scent of white flowers and backed by funky lightly meaty creamy undertones and a suggestion of spice. It's deep and luxuriant yet fine and supple with a seamlessly integrated spectrum of fruit and artefact delivering length brightness and balance finishing with length and emphasis.

Wine Front - Wine Front, November 2009
Tight savoury and matchsticky with grapefruit and nectarine and some of that very attractive lime rind character - as seen in the ripping 2006 vintage. There's no excess here but no shortage of flavour or richness either... Tight savoury and matchsticky with grapefruit and nectarine and some of that very attractive lime rind character - as seen in the ripping 2006 vintage. There's no excess here but no shortage of flavour or richness either. It's a sculptured wine where oak is present but correct contributing some smoky clove and ginger spice flavours the acidity clean and neatly threaded through culminating in a long spicy citrus tinged finish. Spot on. -Gary Walsh
