Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.5% vol. ($84)

With proper storage, this blend is recommended to cellar for up to 15 years. Still we have our doubts as this is actually a forgotten bottle in the basement...

It tastes great! Made from Cape Mentelle's oldest vines planted in 1970s at Margaret River, Western Australia, the wine is of great depth and complexity.

Not forgetting, during the period of bottle maturation this fine wine has thrown a natural tartrate deposit, thus we decant prior to serving.
