顏色深紅濃厚,漸蛻變成年輕的紅寶石色。 80% 是 Merlot 和 Cabernet Sauvignon,單寧和豐富的黑車厘子果味融合得宜的、還有士多啤梨和黑加侖子香氣,猶如波爾多的經典。口感有力量而深刻,長久、複雜有層次的收結。

On the grounds of a former fruit farm Capaia was created in 1997 by Ingrid Baroness von Essen and Alexander Baron von Essen. Capaia is part of the New Philadelphia wine-growing region, near Durbanville, and constitutes a “wine ward” of its own. In 2005, Capaia was declared an estate (in accordance with the Château principle). Capaia’s entire terrain comprises 140 hectares (approximately 350 acres), and extends upwards across the north-east flank of the Olifantskop. It is located about 30 km from Cape Town and 10 km from the Atlantic.
The heart of Capaia is the winery, which has been built into the slope at an altitude of 200 metres. It was erected and equipped in line with the specifications stated by Tibor Gál, as well as with the requirements of state-of-the-art wine-making.

Grape Varieties:
45% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 3% Shiraz

Maturation for this wine took place in 225L barrels from French Taransaud Coopers for 18 months.

Tasting Notes:
This wine has considerable depth of colour. A dark core graduating to a youthful ruby colour. With 80% of the blend comprising Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, a marriage of well integrated tannins and intense fruity black cherry, strawberry and cassis aroma is formed, which is classic for a Bordeaux blend. This wine attacks the mouth deep and powerful, culminating in a sophisticated finish that lingers.
