Single Vineyard wines epitomise the ultimate varietal expression of grapes grown on and selected from the most suitable rows of our family owned, mature and proven cool climate Western Australian vineyards. These wines are released only in years when we believe that this has been achieved.

All fruit is harvested from our Whispering Hill vineyard that is situated on ancient granitic soils in the truly cool viticultural region of Mount Barker. The wine was vinified using a selected Shiraz yeast in open fermenters under closely controlled conditions. Two weeks after fermentation the wine was pressed directly into French oak barriques. During 12 months in oak the wine was minimally handled, fined using egg whites and bottled with minimal filtration.

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.
