This full bodied and elegant wine is a blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon enhanced with a small percentage of classic varietals. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques, producing a complex blend of Margaret River fruit characters including cassis, eucalypt, capsicum, mulberry and plum with secondary notes of chocolate, tobacco and cedar.

Expert Reviews

Perhaps hypocritically, this wine is also very varietal and regional, yet I like it much more than the 2007 Cabernet Merlot. I think elegance is a defining character of 2008 Margaret River reds. The quality of the grapes really shines through here.

Aromas of red fruits and eucalyptus, with mulberries and chocolate on the palate. Soft, clean and approachable. It’s definitely got all the good genes of its father The Scholar, and at a third of the price, it’s hard to go past.

Winery Tasting Notes


Mulberry, cassis and capsicum overtones


Mulberries, cassis and plum with some secondary chocolate tones.

Food Matching

Hearty beef casserole, beef stroganoff, or dukkah-crusted lamb cutlets. Mature hard cheeses such as cheddar, parmesan or romano.

Cellaring Potential

While delicious to drink young for its primary fruit characters, this wine will gain in complexity with cellaring up to 5 - 10 years.

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.
