In the Margaret River region of Western Australia lies Cape Mentelle, a leading producer of the region, and one of the first wineries to be established here. The vineyards are located between the town of Margaret River and Cape Mentelle itself, and were planted by Mark and David Hoehnen, the latter perhaps better known for having subsequently established Cloudy Bay Vineyards, in 1970..
“Cape Mentelle is firing on all cylinders, with the winemaking team fully capitalising on the extensive and largely mature vineyards, which obviate the need for contract-grown fruit.
Cape Mentelle is one of those knocking on the door of the Winery of the Year Award.”
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2016 edition
