Capel Vale Regional Series Mt Barker Shiraz 2019

Capel Vale Regional Series Mt Barker Shiraz has a medium bodied yet delicate style. Vibrant bramble fruit, ground cloves and a touch of violets on the nose. The lush palate is fleshy with supple tannins and an acidic bite supporting juicy dark fruit flavours of blackberry, mulberry and plum.

100% Shiraz. Site and varietal selection is the result of more than 30 years of research, trial and observation of vine performance in Capel Vale’s various vineyards. The fruit comes from Capel Vale's Mount Barker Vineyard, which overlooks the Porongurup Mount Ranges to the north east. Cool, windy, often overcast conditions, with very leached laterite and granite sandy soils provide the region with ideal growing conditions for Shiraz.

Ageing potential: Drink now for its primary fruit characters or let it gain complexity and smoothness with 5–8 years of cellaring.
