Chardonnay grown to the cooler nethers of southwest Australia can stand alone, unwooded and unoaked, showing lifted aromas of pineapple and melon, nectarines and peach. Vines are stimulated by the unique maritime influence of the coastal regions into yielding grapes which express the hallmark characters that we know and love about west coast Chardonnay. Debut makes the grade, not least for it's vitality and freshness in a vivacious fruit driven styling, but also for its generosity of flavour, contemporary styling and exquisite balance.
Chardonnay is harvested at optimum ripeness, grapes are crushed and destemmed, the musts are chilled and dejuiced. Batches are racked off into fermenters after three days of cold settling and introduced to aromatic yeasts. Vinification is halted early to retain the natural grape sugars, contributing body while enhancing vital fruit characters in the finished wine.
TASTING NOTES
Straw yellow hues. Lifted tropical fruit aromas, pineapples and peach, apple and fresh cut melon. A clean, fresh mouthful of citrus and nectarine flavours on a textural Chardonnay palate exhibiting excellent depth and weight of cool climate fruit, culminating on a long and crisp finish. The wine of choice for baby snapper or baked eggplant and bolognaise with, fresh basil and ripe tomato.

About the Capel Vale Winery
Capel Vale began as a hobby for Sydney radiologist Dr Peter Pratten and his wife Elizabeth when they purchased land on the Capel River between Bunbury and Busselton in 1974
Capel Vale Winery, restaurant and cellar door, now sit atop the original vineyard site, Stirling Estate. Stirling Estate was originally the site of a stone fruit orchard in the 1930s. Consisting of rich, red alluvial loams over a limestone base, it possessed a natural, permanent watertable and was perfect for growing vines. The first plantings were in 1974, producing the first commercial vintage in 1980. After determining that the soils of the Capel area (now included in the EU registered Geographe Region) were best suited to Chardonnay and Merlot, it became the Prattens passion to determine the best region in South Western Australia for each of the main premium grape varieties.
