Margaret River’s Cape Mentelle winery is celebrating its 50th anniversary by unveiling a unique collection of rare, back vintage Cabernet Sauvignons.
The wines have been carefully selected by both past and present teams for their outstanding quality – they are an invitation to journey through several generations of winemakers who have made Cape Mentelle what it is today.
Only five of these unique box sets are available for auction through Langton’s and represent a very rare and special commemoratation of five decades of Cape Mentelle and its vibrant, elegant and expressive wines.
Cape Mentelle is famed for its cabernets. It took out its first Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1983 and won the accolade again in 1984.
Cape Mentelle Winemaker Ben Cane (above) said: “Personally, I am thrilled to be a part of this historical moment. Cape Mentelle, for those who have worked here and have been fans over the years, is an institution of great wine, fun stories and proof that a pioneering spirit, a sense of humour and lots of hard work pays off, placing Cape Mentelle on the map as an iconic winery of the world. To taste through the decades via the lens of these wines, with the legends who crafted them, is a true honour and privilege.”
