Clos du Soleil Capella 2010

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA blend of 90 percent sauvignon blanc and 10 percent sémillion, this is from the cool 2010 vintage. It shows a fair bit of malolactic character on the nose (think yogurt) with pink grapefruit and nougat. At nearly ten years of age, it strikes a nice balance between fresh fruit and aged tertiary notes. It may not have the complexity of the 2006 vintage, but the palate is pure and precise, with a pithy grapefruit rind finish. I found it became more evolved with time in the glass, so I would suggest to drink this vintage in the short term if you're looking to retain some youthful fruit character. 525 cases produced.Tasted: 05 October 2019Tasted by: Prices:
