Capaia One 2010

The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness before undergoing natural fermentation in large French Oak fermenters. Individual vineyards were kept separate to evaluate their quality before being carefully blended together, after which maturation took place in 60% new French Oak barrels.

The nose has surprisingly fresh and youthful aromas. Although the tannins are extremely well integrated they are prominent enough to compliment the upfront aromas.

The red berry flavours are supported by a wide and profound mid-pallet. The back pallet ends with a combination of dark fruit, enhanced by smoked flavours, leaving a lingering aftertaste.

This wine is most enjoyable now, but promise not to disappoint within the next 10 years.
