Clos du Soleil Saturn 2013

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis 100 percent sauvignon blanc, harvested from 18-year-old vines sports a deep yellow gold colour three years on. The fruit was simply fermented for 18 days in mostly old, neutral, French oak puncheons, and then aged on the lees until bottling. Look for an expansive, ripe nose of rich butter, deep peach, apricot and floral notes. Intense lime and mandarin blossom coats the palate with vanilla, honey and heady pear nectar on the palate. A spicy and savoury finish lingers. Would make a lovely pour alongside vanilla or peach cheesecake or blue cheeses. The residual sugar count was 67.4 g/L. the harvest dates were November 20 and 21.Tasted: 08 July 2016Tasted by: Prices:
