Debut Cabernet Merlot, Capel Vale
Debut wines are fresh, fruity, exuberant wines which remain true at all times to their varietal origins.
Benchmark Margaret River Cabernet Merlot blend, from Capel Vale's own vineyards. The nose leads with an attractive cassis and berry compote nose seamlessly netted together with well judged oak. The palate has a lovely balance of fresh lifted fruit, structured ripe tannins and a long finish. Crying out for some grilled lamb or spicy vegetable and chickpea stews. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot.

TIME IN OAK
The 2019 vintage at Capel Vale Wines was a tremendous vintage resulting in lower yields with exceptional quality fruit and high flavour concentration.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot fruit were crushed and fermented in stainless vats before being pressed to French oak barriques to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine was left in oak for 10 months and then blended together before fining and filtration prior to bottling.
