There are few producers more influential in the world of Sauvignon Blanc than Cape Mentelle. In 1985 they founded Cloudy Bay in Marlborough, New Zealand, and with at the very center of creating the now famous style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The story, however, starts in Margaret River in Western Australia. Cape Mentelle was one of the first five producers there, and is at the center of the fame of that region as well. The style of this Sauvignon Blanc, however, is worlds different from New Zealand. Here there is more emphasis on texture, with a little creaminess coming from the Semillon, and much less emphasis on crunchy peppers and grass.
