Additional information

Capel Vale

In 1974 Capel Vale was the first winery in Western Australia to own and establish vineyards in the cool climate regions of Margaret River, Mount Barker and Geographe. Original winemaker and owners Dr Peter and Elizabeth Pratten produced the first vintage in 1980, handing responsibility to son Simon in the mid 2000s. They are still a family-owned and -managed winery.

Producing wines with regional distinction and showing respect for their pristine environment matters here; Sheldrake ducks accompanied the original vineyard planting teams, and their enduring presence is acknowledged on the Capel Vale wine labels.

Production

Vintage conditions
The 2019 vintage at Capel Vale Wines was a tremendous vintage resulting in lower yields with exceptional quality fruit and high flavour concentration.

Vinification details
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot fruit were crushed and fermented in stainless vats before being pressed to French oak barriques to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was left in oak for 10 months and then blended together before fining and filtration prior to bottling.
