Expert Reviews

Purple-crimson hue; there is a lot of wine in the glass, with an array of blackcurrant, cassis and mulberry fruit shot through with persistent, although fine, tannins and French oak.Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Rich red meats, casseroles, BBQ. Ripe cheese platters and mature hard cheddars.

Winemaking Notes

Picked at optimum ripeness from 'The Scholar' vineyard, the fruit is then de-stemmed but not crushed. Cold macerated with a moderate ferment, yeasts are introduced to increase aromatics and texture. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques increasing texture. Margaret River cabernet and merlot were then assembled to achieve maximum complexity and aromas with the small addition of petit verdot.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Capel Vale was established in 1974 by Sydney radiologist Dr Peter Pratten and his wife Elizabeth when they purchased land on the Capel River between Bunbury and Busselton in Western Australia’s South-West.

The site was originally a stone fruit orchard and its rich red alluvial loam soils over limestone made it a perfect viticultural site. It is also the location for the winery, cellar door and award winning restaurant.

After several vintages, it became apparent to Peter Pratten that the soils of the Capel area (now recognised as the Geographe region) were best suited to Chardonnay and Merlot. It became Peter's passion to determine the best region in South Western Australia for each premium grape variety. As a result Capel Vale has invested in prime viticultural land in Mount Barker for the production of Shiraz and Riesling, in Pemberton for Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc and in Margaret River for Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
