Capel Vale Debut Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2020
Australia / Western Australia
Andy's Tasting Notes
This is delightfully fresh, crisp, dry and elegant with a pleasing lightness of touch, yet expressively tasty with lime, lemon, white peach and gentle herby overtones.
2020 was a tremendous vintage in Western Australia resulting in lower yields, exceptional quality fruit and superb flavour concentration.
70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon

In 1974 Capel Vale was the first winery in Western Australia to own and establish vineyards in the cool climate regions of Margaret River, Mount Barker and Geographe. Original winemaker and owners Dr Peter and Elizabeth Pratten produced the first vintage in 1980, handing responsibility to son Simon in the mid 2000s. They are still a family-owned and -managed winery.
Producing wines with regional distinction and showing respect for their pristine environment matters here; Sheldrake ducks accompanied the original vineyard planting teams, and their enduring presence is acknowledged on the Capel Vale wine labels.
