Capel Vale Regional Series Mount Barker Riesling 2020

Australia / Western Australia

Andy's Tasting Notes

I’ll probably drink more bottles than I should this spring/summer of this truly fantastic example of dry Riesling endowed with elegance and panache! Perfect fruit intensity overlaid with lip-smacking freshness and cool minerality.  Lemon, orange, basil and elderflower aromas and flavours.

Stylish and sophisticated.

Producer notes – The Whispering Hill Vineyard in Mount Barker provides perfect growing conditions for Riesling. The vines, overlooking the Porongurup Mount Ranges to the north east are over thirty years old and produce fruit of great intensity & complexity.  The 2020 vintage at Capel Vale Wines was a tremendous vintage resulting in lower yields with exceptional quality fruit, high flavour concentration and good natural acidity.

Producer Info

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.
