Cape Mentelle Shiraz 2007

90++ points

Margaret River, Western Australia. 14%

A great wine in a great vintage. Much praised by Australian wine writers, who often make comparisons to the Rhone yet I find it very Australian. It certainly lacks the florality and acid of the Killerby 2001 tried recently. I expected more acid fullstop not that it’s really deficient. I’m buying a case or two because I have high hopes and the price is great.
