Capel Vale Regional Series Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
A pungent Rhôney shiraz with charming reductive complexity. Its meaty bouquet of dark plums and cherries, cracked pepper and menthol does reflect some slightly raw and edgy oak. Smooth and polished, with a deep, rich core of plum and dark berry flavours knit with assertive oak and fine tannins, it finishes with pleasing length and balance, with lingering minty and herbal nuances.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Spicy, meaty and savoury, with a sweet, gamey bouquet of slightly evolved and varnishy dark plums, black and red berries. Full to medium bdied, it's deep and forward, with a moderate length of fruit supported by firmish, fine-grained powdery tannins but finishing a little flat and lacking genuine brightness.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Soft and smooth, with spicy, faintly minty aromas of blackberries, dark plums and redcurrants backed by sweet vanilla oak, nuances of menthol and dried herbs, dill and forest floor, this is a rather forward, easy-paced shiraz of medium weight. Its sweet, forward presence of redcurrant, forest floor and tomatoey fruit is supported by a fine, drying undercarriage but lacks high level length and ripeness.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says
Some reds are made to be drunk immediately; some need to be cellared for many years; others, like this one, would benefit greatly from just two or three years in a cool, dark place. It has talent, but it's a bit arms and legs at the moment. It needs time to settle down. It's a strange mix of porty, brandied flavours and more fruity black cherry, its toasty oak a touch overdone - but within reasonable limits. It all should mesh nicely and make for a good rendition of what Mount Barker shiraz has to offer. It has the structure and spice to mature very well. High alcohol, though.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Ripe, porty nose and a long, lingering, sweet berry palate with tannins tending to dominate for the moment.
