Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Aromas of citrus/grapefruit are made more complex by vanillery French oak

Palate

The aromas follow through to a long and complex palate with a creamy mouthfeel and good length.

Cellaring Potential

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

Food Matching

Roast chicken with lemon and rosemary potatoes or woodfire roasted lobster with herb and garlic butter. Washed rind cheeses such Trou du Cru or Lincet Brillat-Savarin.

Winemaking Notes

Unique for the regular afternoon cloud cover, Pemberton is a premium cool climate viticultural region producing elegant flavours and wines of note. The juice was racked but not settled giving more mouthfeel and texture. Using a combination of new and old oak as well as a portion through malo-lactic fermentation provided a creamier, textured style. Battonage during maturation also enhanced texture.

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.
