Cape Mentelle 2016 Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

This Margaret River Shiraz-dominant blend shows off plenty of regional character. It smells like the scrubby vegetation growing in the dunes beside the Indian Ocean. It's also a little soapy, as Shiraz from these parts can sometimes be, but is spicy, too, with red fruit and blueberries, florals and pipe tobacco. There's a firm grip of savory, tight-grained tannins and a satiny mouthfeel, and this retains a relatively cool-climate feel. Christina Pickard
