Cape Mentelle Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017
Appearance: Bright and shiny, white gold with silver hues. Nose: The nose is a perfect painting of our Margaret River surroundings- a patch of ancient earth surrounded by vast oceans where fresh, crisp saline scents of the sauvignon blanc meld with the earthy unctuosity of the semillon. The nose is intense with nuances of yellow peach, rockmelon, passionfruit, lemon zest and juniper berry aromas, topped by a hint of white pepper corn. Palate: The first approach is very fresh with excellent vibrancy and tension, developing into citrus and melon characters. The wine is then textural and unctuous, ending with a long, zesty finish accompanied by a line of minerality that brings us back to the ocean cliffs and Margaret River mouth.

Groth Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml 2014The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. The sweet vanilla character derived from 22 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine. Food Pairings: This is Cabernet, so of course it will be great with steak. With its big fruit character and crisp acidity, be sure to consider more subtle cuts such as tenderloin (filet mignon). As an alternative, it will be equally at home alongside a big, juicy pork chop.
