Vintage conditions

The 2021 vintage in Margaret River was a cool, wet & challenging one. A battle from start to finish, with very tricky weather conditions to manage picking around. It was ultimately rewarding with delicate Cabernet showcasing typical regional characteristics.

Vinification details

Cabernet Sauvignon fruit was 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 before barrel selection, and was fined prior to filtration.

Tasting note

Capel Vale's Margaret River Regional Cabernet Sauvignon is a clear step up from the Debut Range. Aromas of rich damson fruit and dark chocolate, more cassis flavours and soft integrated ripe tannins on the finish, very refined and long to the finish. Lovely with roast sirloin of beef or black and blue steak off the BBQ.
