In Detail

Over the last 40 years Cape Mentelle has consistently produced some of the region’s best wines having perfected the blending of sauvignon blanc and semillon now synonymous with Margaret River as well as establishing the region’s reputation for cabernet sauvignon back in the early 80’s.

In recent years under the guidance of winemaker Robert Mann, Cape Mentelle has continued to excel with an increasing reputation for elegant chardonnay and fine shiraz; a reputation that has been cemented with a string of Gold medals & an incredible 5 Trophies for the 07 Shiraz.

The Cape Mentelle winery is one of the region's first 'rammed earth' buildings and is set amongst beautiful native gardens featuring purpose built petanque lanes, picnic tables and childrens swings next to a seasonal creek. The cellar door offers a broad range of wine styles and some stunning cellar releases all served by friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Cape Mentelle has over 150 hectares of its own vines across four vineyards within the Margaret River region. Primary plantings are cabernet sauvignon, semillon and sauvignon blanc, with smaller amounts of shiraz, chardonnay, merlot, cabernet franc and zinfandel.

Building on the winery’s tradition of pioneering spirit and uncompromising commitment to excellence, our team are taking up the challenge to create the best reflection of what our vineyards deliver.

Cape Mentelle is accredited under the Winemakers Federation of Australia’s Entwine program. Cape Mentelle was only the fifth winery in Australia to receive the certification and the first in Western Australia. The program was designed to show the trade and consumers that their chosen wine has been produced by a winery that maintains a high standard of environmental practice and has shown a history of improving environmental practices. The accreditation process is extensive and requires thorough audits of all aspects of the winery’s operation.
