Cape Men­telle’s Wilyabrup 2012

Cape Men­telle is not only ex­celling with their $95 pre­mium black la­bel caber­net sauvi­gnons, their ‘Wilyabrup’ is also amongst Aus­tralia’s great sub $50 caber­nets.

The cur­rent and fifth re­lease is from the 2012 vin­tage and, whilst the 2011 re­lease was a step up on those prior, the 2012 is clearly the best to date.

The qual­ity of the fruit is ex­cep­tional, as is the wine­mak­ing.

Though very young, this is mar­vel­lous cur­rent drink­ing and will im­prove with, and han­dle with ease, up to 15 years of cel­lar­ing.

The Liquor Baron stores in Swan­bourne and Dalkeith and the RE Store in Leed­erville have older Cape Men­telle Caber­nets.

The last stocks of the 2011 Wood­lands ‘ Margaret’ and the Fraser Gal­lop Caber­net Sauvi­gnons are avail­able and they join this 2012 Cape Men­telle Wilyabrup Caber­net Sauvi­gnon amongst the great sub $50 caber­nets in Aus­tralia to­day.
