Capaia One 2011

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.
This wine has immense depth of colour, with a dark, almost opaque garnet core. The nose offers overt aromas of intense black fruit with an earthy, mineral bouquet from the new French oak barrels used for maturation.

The striking dark fruit aromas follow seamlessly onto a mouth filling palate with an incredible texture of velvety tannins. Herbal notes, accentuated with a hint of meatiness on the aftertaste completes the palate of this wine.

This full bodied wine shows all the attributes of a good quality wine – balance, length, intensity and complexity with an aging potential of up to ten years or more from vintage.
