Capel Vale Regional Series Shiraz
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.
Capel Vale produces a distinctive Shiraz from its vineyards in the cool climate Mount Barker region. Medium bodied yet rich and complex, this elegant wine is unique in Australia and demands attention.
