Capel Vale have played an important role in the establishment of the Western Australian wine industry and the recognition of southwest Australia as a world class winegrowing region. They established their first vines in 1974 after determining that the Capel area, near Geographe Bay, was ideally suited to viticulture. Capel Vale have enjoyed runaway success for Shiraz with their second tier Debut label, having claimed national gold at the Canberra wine show and Blue Gold at the prestigious Sydney International.
The winemaking philosophy at Capel Vale is to make intensely fruit driven and complex, powerful yet elegant wines, from fruit grown specifically to the mesoclime that's most favourable. Every Capel Vale vineyard was established from day one with the grape varieties most appropriate for the climate and terroir. Shiraz grapes are destemmed but not crushed for a maximum inclusion of whole berries. Musts are chilled and cold soaked for several days. Choice yeasts are added to initiate a traditional vinification in controlled fermenters. Upon completion, the batches are pressed, settled and racked off lees for a course of malolactic and maturation in a selection of seasoned oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Bright garnet hue. Licorice nose, red berries and black pepper spice. Succulent berry and black pepper fruit flavours skillfully balanced by spicy French and American vanillin oak. A liingering finish on a note of plums, currant and spice. Will accompany many food styles but is the accompaniement of choice to red game meats, lamb and rich beef recipes.

About 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.
