Inspired by the groves of trees with the magnificent and occasionally “blue” Table Mountain visible from Capaia, this Bordeaux blend is another fine example of the quality and excellence that CAPAIA strives for.
The name “Blue Grove Hill” is given to the second range of wines produced and bottled at the impressive CAPAIA winery.
Vinification of this wine follows the same careful process as the flagship CAPAIA, with each vineyard’s progress monitored and evaluated separately until the blending takes place. The wines are allowed to undergo Malolactic fermentation naturally in 2nd fill
French Oak barriques, and then mature for approximately 8 months before being bottled and labelled at CAPAIA.
Very fruity, distinguished wine with nice integrated tannins.
While this wine is intended for earlier consumption, it is recommended that it be enjoyed between 2 and 6 years after vintage.
