Clos du Soleil Capella 2018

British Columbia, CanadaClos du Soleil's flagship white is a stately Bordeaux blend of 85% sauvignon blanc / 15% sémillon, sourced from Keremeos and Oliver. After whole cluster pressing, these were partially native fermented in barrels (65% French oak, 35% stainless) with full MLF. All the lots were aged for 9 months on lees with battonage. Lemon lime, sherbet, white grapefruit and ample broken stony spices texture the medium palate, potent and structural due to the oak, with crisp citrus, melon, and an earthiness that lingers on the finish. Not as seamless and cohesive as the previous vintage, at least at this point.Tasted: 11 January 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
