Capaia One 2014

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.

Deep garnet in colour, this Cabernet-dominated blend shows intense aromas of ripe dark berries with nuances of oak. The palate follows through with a powerful mix of deep, dark berry flavours. Smoke tobacco supports the rich texture. Although the tannins are firm they are soft so the fruits give lots of flesh on the mid-palate. Carpaccio meatiness are enhanced by a touch of spiciness with a lingering finish which invites you to the next glass.

This elegant wine compliments most meat dishes like steak, game and veal.
