Opaque ruby-purple in hue. Abundant aromas of berries with hints of pepper and herbs. The palate is rich, soft and succulent, packed with ripe dark berry flavours. Elegant oaking presents a well-balanced, round wine with soft tannins, making it an accessible and enjoyable wine that lingers on the palate.
Up to 10 years from vintage.
In The Cellar
From time to time, depending on the vintage and grapes available, Capaia releases a special edition of Shiraz as a single variety. This Shiraz underwent natural fermentation in large French Oak fermenters. Maturation took place in 2nd fill French Oak barrels for a total of 12 months.
With a late start to the winter season preceding the 2019 harvest, good rainfall was very much welcomed after a three year drought. Spring was characterised by big weather fluctuations, but conditions improved with the onset of summer. Temperatures were moderate in December and January, followed by a hot February. Harvesting kicked off a little later than normal. A larger crop than 2018, with promising quality.
