Trinders Shiraz Cabernet Bottle

Trinders Shiraz Cabernet

Shiraz and cabernet sauvignon have been blended in Australia since the late 19th century, in a style that uniquely combines the plush and savoury notes of the shiraz with the elegance, length and structure of the cabernet. With this wine, Cape Mentelle reconnects with Australian wine traditions and blends these two outstanding varieties from the Margaret River region, creating a rich, deeply textured and complex wine.

Sauvignon Blanc Bottle

Sauvignon Blanc

Driven by a desire to explore our extensive cool climate Sauvignon Blanc sources, we created this small blend from some of our finest parcels to illuminate the fruit purity and varietal expression of our special sites. A wine of tension and drive, it demanded its own bottling, providing immediate enjoyment, or rewarding careful cellaring.

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Bottle

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Cape Mentelle takes a non-interventionist approach towards this classic Margaret River blend allowing the region and varieties to speak with loud, clear voices, aiming to preserve fruit intensity and purity. The style accentuates the fresh, vibrant fruit characters of both varieties with the added complexity and palate weight offered through several months of aging on lees; the land and ocean vividly expressed.

Rosé Bottle


Cape Mentelle Rosé is a fresh, vibrant expression of the typical dry rosé style. It’s one of the favourites of the winemaking team as we are able to play with varieties not planted on our estate and of vineyards from different areas in the local region. We have fun with it; and that’s its true intent; fun and flavourful, enjoyed with friends.

Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Bottle

Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

The Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a timeless classic blend produced from our Wallcliffe vineyard established in 1970. In Margaret River, both varieties find a rare and complementary expression: while the sauvignon is intensely fruity but also focused and mineral, the semillon is generous and textural. The winemaking approach relies on the selection of our most exceptional fruit and is mostly hands-off to showcase the terroir and the vintage expression, light-handedly supported by our most respectful choice of French oak.

Cabernet Sauvignon Bottle

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cape Mentelle has a rich history of exceptional quality and consistency with Cabernet Sauvignon, from a pioneering producer in Margaret River in the early 1970s to a benchmark winery today. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is the culmination of an intensely detailed approach to our vineyards and grape selection. From our vigour and soil mapping techniques to the identification of select parcels and hand-harvesting bunch by bunch, we ensure gentle handling through every stage of production.

Zinfandel Bottle


A grape variety our founder, David Hohnen, fell in love with whilst studying in the US in the early 70’s. He brought his new discovery home to be planted in 1974 on the Wallcliffe Estate Vineyard. This fickle variety demands great attention viticulturally, requiring a high bush vine trellis with plenty of space and air for the large compact bunches. It has become a cult classic for us, making a powerful yet fresh version of this ancient variety, enticing its followers each year to return and enjoy.
