The 2018 was an excellent vintage showing fantastic fruit weight and flavour intensity. This Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented in French oak barriques. Only native yeasts were used.
The wine offers a complex nose of orange blossom, white peach and lemon curd. Flavours of white nectarine core finishing with hints of hazelnut and light cream characters.

About this Wine
“Some gently reductive nuances on the nose that lead to a palate with a very composed, mango and nectarine core. Great depth and freshness. Purity of fruit is a highlight, too. Drink or hold.”
Our much loved Black Label Series is back to express an exalted selection of our best vintages.

Season: The 2018 vintage at Capel Vale Wines was a tremendous vintage resulting in lower yields with exceptional quality fruit and high flavour concentration.
