Capel Vale Regional Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2021
Capel Vale Regional Series Chardonnay demonstrates Margaret River's claim as a world class Chardonnay region. Poise and complexity on release with flavours of yellow peaches, orange blossom, freshly shaved fennel, light cream and toasted hazelnuts with a briny, saline finish.
100% Chardonnay. After more than 30 years of research, trial and observation of vine performance in various vineyards, the vines that produce the fruit for this wine were planted where the optimal expression of its variety could be achieved. The vines grow in Capel Vale's Schoar Vineyard in the heart of the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River. The soil consists of laterite gravel over sandy loam, overlying areas of granitic loamy soil that rise to the surface in the high ground. The incredible climate, clean environment, ancient soils, fresh air, and wild oceans on three sides culminate in a stable predictable Mediterranean maritime climate perfect for growing grapes.
100% wild ferment, then the wine spent 7 months in French barriques with regular stirring of the lees.
Ageing potential: Drink now or let it gain complexity with cellaring up to 5 to 7 years.
