The winemaking philosophy at Capel Vale is to make intensely fruit driven and complex, powerful yet elegant wines, from fruit grown specifically to the mesoclime that's most favourable. Every Capel Vale vineyard was established from day one with the grape varieties most appropriate for the climate and terroir. Shiraz grapes are destemmed but not crushed for a maximum inclusion of whole berries. Musts are chilled and cold soaked for several days. Choice yeasts are added to initiate a traditional vinification in controlled fermenters. Upon completion, the batches are pressed, settled and racked off lees for a course of malolactic and maturation in a selection of the vey finest oak.
