Cape Landing Wines
Award winning Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc were produced from Cape Landing's 2018 vintage.
Crafting a full range of outstanding wines takes time, patience and skill, and an elegant Reserve Chardonnay and a delicate, perfumed Reserve Syrah will be added to our range of wines from the 2019 vintage, along with the very first wines from our Blackwood Series.

2018 Sauvignon Blanc
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was our first release and was recognised almost immediately with medals at the Langton’s 2018 Margaret River Wine Show and the 2018 International Wine Challenge in London, UK. This crisp Sauvignon Blanc has a refreshing palate of stone fruit and melon, balanced by focused flavours of pear and lime, with subtle tones of creamy French oak.
2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Our first Cabernet Sauvignon is looking glorious and tasting absolutely superb, with medium bodied tannins and high-level fragrances. It has a bouquet of violets, glazed cherries and subtle hints of cedar and freshly roasted coffee beans. Bottling was completed in March 2019 and the finished, packaged wine is now settling, laying low, in a dark, cool place awaiting release sometime in 2020 or 2021.
2019 Sauvignon Blanc
Fruit for our vintage 2019 Sauvignon Blanc was picked in early March 2019. The fruit was picked at optimal perfume and flavour, while still preserving natural acidity and we strive to make our wines as pure a translation of the fruit into the wine as possible. 20% of the wine was fermented on premium French Oak and matured sur lee (on yeast lees) for 3 months before being returned to stainless steel. The wine was bottled during the winter months of 2019.
2019 Reserve Chardonnay
Our 2019 Reserve Chardonnay represents the very best fruit from of our prized Chardonnay vines and marks another key achievement for Cape Landing. This wine is the first Chardonnay produced by Cape Landing. The fruit was picked in early March 2019 and, after a long cool ferment, the wine was aged for a further 8 months on French Oak before being blended, lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
Cape Landing is producing an expanded selection of wines from our 2019 Vintage, including a Sauvignon Blanc and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve Chardonnay and Reserve Syrah, and the very first wines from Cape Landing's 'Blackwood' series of extremely limited production versions of our Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
Despite late harvest this vintage of the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties, caused by longer than expected cool conditions across the Margaret River region, we are delighted with the 2019 vintage results with all fruit arriving at the winery in superb condition.
Wine making from our 2019 Vintage is well advanced.
Our Cape Landing 2019 Sauvignon Blanc was bottled in early August 2019 and will be released for sale in early 2020.
Our Cape Landing 2019 Reserve Chardonnay, our very first vintage Chardonnay, was bottled in mid-November 2019. Release is expected in the second calendar quarter of 2020.
We continue to build on the success gained by our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, a medal winner at the 2018 Langton's Margaret River Wine Show, with further awards received for our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc and 2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon at the 2019 Langton's Margaret River Wine Show.
Our Reserve and Blackwood Series wines are all being crafted using carefully selected fruit, utilising the unique skills and talents of our winemakers with longer fermentation and more complicated oak barrel maturation.
Bottling of the our 2019 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019 Reserve Syrah and 2019 Blackwood Chardonnay will take place in late January 2020.
Our 2019 Blackwood Cabernet Sauvignon will be bottled in August 2020.
Release dates for all of Cape Landing's 2019 Vintage wines will be announced later in 2020.
In the meantime, we invite you to make contact and register your interest.
Our Cape Landing 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and 2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon are available for immediate purchase, and we will keep you updated with news of wine releases, restaurant locations, wine maker dinners and other events.
