Capel Vale Pemberton Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

What could be more regional for WA than a Sauvignon Blanc? The regional collection from Capel Vale ticks all the boxes when it comes to crafting wines that show the true potential of site and fruit selection. This wine is all about Pemberton purity, fruit coming from one of the cooler regions of WA. It’s got nasal- quivering aromas of green bean, pea, and herbaceous and mineral edges. It has good structure and body showing honeydew melon, lime and flint before ending with zippy acids. A masterful Savvy, which would marry well with white fish and asparagus.

Winemaker's Notes

Capel Vale's REGIONAL SERIES of wines come from select grape varieties grown for optimum quality on our vineyards situated in the 3 coolest wine regions of Western Australia.

This variety when grown in Pemberton displays fresh green bean, snow pea and lantana characters with an underlying minerality. The region allows this variety to develop a generous textured palate whilst retaining structure and length. The aromas are carried through to the palate and are complemented by flavours of honeydew melon, lime and flint.

Nose: Fresh green bean, snow pea and kiwi fruit characters.

Palate: Textured palate of tropical fruit, honeydew melon, lime and flint.

Food: Grilled snapper with rosemary, greek salad, yellowfin tuna sashimi, goats cheese such as Crottin de Chavignol or Bûcheron.

A fresh, crisp minerally bouquet introduces a light, tightly wound palate with nuances of kiwi fruit and herb.

This part of the Capel Vale Regional series. Shows some typical Pemberton smoky mineral aromas and flavours. Subtle herbaceous and dusty palate with some bright fruit flavours. Initially tasted not long after bottling but a second look got an extra couple of points from me.

This smells and tastes every bit as elegant as it looks, showing fresh snow pea and gravel, some restrained tropical florals. The palate's crisp and vibrant, has a gentle tickle of fizz to it, delivering flinty/savoury flavour along cool acid lines.
