Cape Mentelle shiraz 2001

94 points

Margaret River, WA. 14.5%

One of Australia’s great shiraz. Distinctive style, a sort of North South Rhone mix. Opulent yet fresh.

For a good while I though the 99 superior to the 2001 but now I think this has not only improved but now surpassed the 99.

I very much anticipate the 2007+ vintages which were superb. They just need 12 years or so in bottle, if you can resist enjoying them earlier.
