Capel Vale Regional Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
A delicious wine resulting from more than 30 years of research. Capel Vale Regional Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon is grown where the optimal expression of its variety can be achieved. Site and varietal selection is the result of more than thirty years of research, trial and observation of vine performance in Capel Vale’s various vineyards.
Dark ruby red colour with a black hue. Blackcurrant, blackberry and bay leaf aromas fill the bouquet, with a hint of cigar box. The dry and full-bodied palate has robust tannins, a lively acidity and fleshy mouthfeel. Rich blackberry, black currant and dark plum fruit flavours with notes of spicy cedar, tobacco leaf and pepper. An elegant and graceful wine with a refined fruit character. Medium length finish.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit comes from Capel Vale's Scholar Vineyard in the heart of the Willyabrup sub region of Margaret River. Soils consist of laterite gravel over sandy loam. The incredible climate, clean environment, ancient soils, fresh air and wild oceans on three sides culminate in a stable Mediterranean maritime climate perfect for growing grapes. This vineyard has naturally low yielding vines with very high quality fruit.
Ageing potential: A delicious wine to drink young for its primary fruit characters. It will gain complexity and smoothness with 5–8 years of cellaring.
