Riesling and the Great Southern region seems to be a match made in heaven! The long, cool ripening period allows for the development of complex citrus and mineral notes. Capel Vales regional selection riesling offers aromas of tropical fruits, candied lemon and limes, before the well weighted palate displays more citrus and lime with some subtle tropical fruit undertones. The palate draws to a long, clean finish.
Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 95 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "This is Top Gear stuff, racing at high speed across the palate, yet doing so with such ease and precision you arrive at the diamond-clear finish and aftertaste in a flash, repeating the exercise as often as you wish."
From the Winery
Capel Vale’s regional series of wines come from select grape varieties grown for optimum quality on our vineyards situated in the 3 coolest wine regions of Western Australia.
Mt Barker, Western Australia Located about 5 hrs drive south of Perth, Mount Barker is a sub-region of the wide and expansive Great Southern wine region. Cool, windy, often overcast conditions, with very leached laterite and granite sandy soils provide the region with ideal growing conditions for Shiraz grapes which ripen showing some of the most desirable elegant but complex flavours and aromas seen in the best wines of Europe.
Using a cool, long and super clean ferment to retain aromatics, the ferment was then halted earlier to preserve the natural sugars in the wine. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled as quickly as possible.
