Clos du Soleil Capella 2006

British Columbia, CanadaFrom their inaugural vintage in 2006, Clos du Soleil produced only three barrels of Clos du Soleil White, which would be renamed Capella in subsequent bottlings. Cappella is now a sauvignon blanc dominant blend; the earlier vintages are 100 percent sauvignon blanc. It has an intriguing waxy, honeyed nose that's quite tertiary at 13 years of age, though still with some underlying yellow fruits. The wine has gained some weight from bottle age, and there's still sauvignon blanc's hallmark tart acidity, which is just beginning to round out. At or just past peak, this vintage is best enjoyed in the near term.Tasted: 05 October 2019Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
