Capel Vale Debut Cabernet Merlot
Capel Vale is one of the larger family owned producers in Western Australia and amongst the first to be established with vines planted in 1974 by Sydney radiologist Dr Peter Pratten and his wife Elizabeth. The initial winery was built on the Stirling Estate in Capel in 1979, the site was originally a stone fruit orchard and its rich red alluvial loam soils over limestone made it a perfect viticultural site.
Classic Margaret River nose of cassis, mulberries and capsicum. Fermentation and development in French and American oak, gives this wine a delicious mouthful of sweet fruit with notes of chocolate, cedar and plums.
