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.

This wine demonstrates aromas of mulberry, plum and chocolate with some secondary cassis and capsicum overtones. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques, producing an unmistakable Margaret River cabernet character.

Expert Reviews

"Medium- to full red-purple; fearsomely full-bodied and intense, this throws the works at the unwary taster: black fruits, tar, bitter chocolate and a brigade of tannins. These components are in balance, so there is every reason why the wine should profit from extended cellaring, and even more reasons for leaving this alone while you drink the Regional Series Cabernet." Rating 94 - James Halliday, (AUG/2011)

"Very fresh, sweet varietal fruit and cigar box oak aromas. Lovely, dense, slightly tannic, palate with intense varietal fruit flavours." Stephen John, Drew Noon MW & Andrew Corrigan MW, Winestate (AUG/2012)

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.
