Clos du Soleil Capella 2011

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe latest in the super restrained, Similkameen style of sauvignon blanc with a five percent sémillon added for complexity. A cool year has dampened the fruit flavours so you have to dig deep to pick up the grapefruit, guava notes but there is plenty of wet stone minerality that screams for clams or mussels or oysters. Austere, mysterious and a touch bitter this is made for aficionados of the essence of wine.Tasted: 01 February 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 24.90 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
