Tasting Notes

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.


Ageing Potential

Up to 10 years from vintage.

Blend Information

100% Shiraz

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.


Additional Information

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.
