Capaia from South Africa is getting better and better

Yesterday we were enjoying two vintages from Capaia in South Africa. The 2005 Vintage (the last from unfortunately passed away Tibor Gal) made wine was incredibly concentrated. The complex fruity nose had first flavours from the beginning ripeness. There are lots of Tannins but ripe and juicy. The 2006 vintage (the first wine made by famous Bordeaux winemaker Stefan Graf von Neipperg) was pretty similar. The nose a little bit less developed but incredibly elegant and delicate. A firm body, concentrated, round with ripe and soft tannins and a long finish. We enjoyed the wines to Lamb-rack – a perfect combination. I’m looking forward to the upcoming vintages!
