Capel Vale Regional Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2020
Australia / Western Australia
Andy's Tasting Notes
It’s the supreme elegance (nice low alcohol too) that stands out in this poised example of high quality Chardonnay. Restrained yet expressive lemon/peach fruit, roasted nuts and a hint of aniseed precede a rich finishing of brioche and gentle toasty oak.
Price per bottle £20.00 £16.50
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.
Capel Vale Wines has been awarded Top 5 Red Star Winery & Top 100 Wineries in Australia for the 11th consecutive year in James Halliday’s 2021 Australian Wine Companion.
