Capaia ONE 2018
This harmonious blend of 5 red varieties, led by Cabernet Sauvignon, offers a subtle nose of dark fruit flavours with a surprising hint of mocha. The beginning of the palate is filled with smoked/cured meat flavours. On the back palate you’ll find dark fruit flavours, like black berries and plums that lingers in the mouth. Firm, but not overwhelming tannins, enough to add the structure needed for a well-aging wine.
* This wine is also available in 1.5L, 3L, 5L, 9L and 18L bottles. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire availability and shipping costs for these items.

Picked at optimum ripeness, grapes underwent natural fermentation in large French oak fermenters. Following malolactic fermentation, individual vineyards were kept separate for eight months. Using only the free running juice of the individual vineyards, this blend was carefully created and matured for a further 12 months in French oak barriques.
