Capaia ONE 2016
Capaia ONE 2016
All the different aspects involved in creating this wine join together in the bottle to display a well-balanced wine. Aromas and flavours of black fruits, with a hint of herbs, blends well with the smokiness and spiciness imparted from spending time in 60% new French oak. This full-bodied blend is complex, yet elegant, with ample, but soft tannins, providing structure to last 10 years and more.

* This wine is also available in 1.5L, 3L, 5L, 9L and 18L bottles. Please email to enquire availability and shipping costs for these items.

Wine Information
Brand Group Capaia Wines
Other The 2016 vintage will likely go down as one of the wildest growing seasons, thanks to torrid heat and record drought. With small berries, yields were down, but smaller berries resulted in wines with a good concentration of flavours. Picked at optimum ripeness, grapes underwent natural fermentation in large French oak fermenters. Eight months following malolactic fermentation, individual vineyards were still kept separate before being blended together and matured for a further 12 months in French oak barriques.
