Partner Pulsit - Cape Mentelle Cape Mentelle, a top Australian elixir of life, reaches the Fragrant Harbour

[15/10/09] 

We all love a drink and many of us prefer wine over beer or a couple of lunchtime Jaeger Bombs. With Hong Kong’s government dropping the wine duty (the equivalent of a financial slap and tickle for many restaurants and their patrons), we can now enjoy much cheaper tipples and better quality vino for our dollars.

One of those fine wines is Moët Hennessy Estates and Wines of Cape Mentelle, one of the founding wineries of the acclaimed Margaret River in South-western Australia. Cape Mentelle first took root in the “River” back in the 1970s (think Grease, Life of Brian and American Graffiti) and has since built a reputation for consistent quality amidst innovation. Capitalising on the region’s Mediterranean-like climate and Robert Mann (a wine maker so manly he has an extra 'n' in his name), Cape Mentelle has won numerous awards for their wine, including a Gold for their 2007 Chardonnay (which, contrary to Ab Fab is coming back) and 95-point rating for their Sauvignon Blanc Semillon (which, like Doogie Howser is young and fruity). Because Moët Hennessy, too, loves Necescity, Hong Kong’s only email lifestyle guide for men, you can enjoy discounts on their whole range, including the Shiraz, Cabernet Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. What’s more, if you spend over HK$2,000, they’ll give you a Spiegelau Venus decanter (worth HK$300), which may be hard to pronounce, but will certainly help you entertain.

 
After all, women are from Venus, and they love wine too.
