Eighty acres of capel Vale vineyards are named after the original Capel Shire subdivisions, the Stirling district being one of the earliest areas surveyed in the entire state. Merlot grapes are partially hand picked off a split canopy trellising system and de-stemmed without any crushing for maximum whole berry inclusion. The musts are chilled and cold soaked for up to five days followed by a traditional vinification. Batches are pressed and settled, racked off gross lees for malolactic and maturation in seasoned French oak barriques to soften the tannins while building structure.
Plum / cherry coloured. Bouquets of kirsch and plum, blackcurrants, bramble and spice, luscious dark blueberry fruits are complemented by mint, leather notes and autumn leaves. The palate is rich and generous whilst maintaining elegance and finesse, sweet plum and cherry flavours, tomatoes and mint, complemented by subtle spice, chocolates and tobacco, over a length of fine tannins, leading to a dry, satisfying finish.
