FLAG­SHIP WINE: Cap­i­tal Wines Ky­eema Shi­raz Viog­nier, $52 What are your win­ery’s draw­cards? We of­fer a range of qual­ity va­ri­etal wines that have been con­sis­tently awarded over the years. Our cel­lar door at Hall vil­lage is only 15 min­utes from the cen­tre of Can­berra, and our epi­curean tast­ing of four wines ex­pertly matched to four tastes of food is a par­tic­u­lar favourite. Our group tast­ing room fea­tures chang­ing ex­hi­bi­tions of lo­cal and re­gional artists.

What does Cap­i­tal Wines do dif­fer­ently? The cool cli­mate and long ripen­ing sea­son of the dis­trict pro­duces ex­cep­tional qual­ity fruit with in­tense flavours. Our Ky­eema vine­yard shi­raz is an old South Aus­tralian clone, sourced from vine­yards used by Pen­folds. Ours is one of just a few Can­berra vine­yards to pro­duce shi­raz from this clone. The com­bi­na­tion of age and clone make these vines unique within the re­gion.

Cel­lar Door: 13 Glad­stone St, Hall vil­lage cap­i­tal­wines.com.au, @cap­i­tal­wines
