Clos du Soleil Capella 2019

British Columbia, CanadaTight, zesty, and intense, this Bordeaux-inspired white blends 83% sauvignon blanc (from Keremeos) and 17% sémillon (oliver). After a whole bunch press, the lots were partial native fermented in barrel (82% French puncheons, 18% stainless), and partial MLF before aging on lees with bâtonnage for nine months. Passionfruit, orange, guava, grapefruit jockey for pole position, all braced with zesty lemony acidity, and scented with scrubby desert herbs. A fresh, powerful style.Tasted: 18 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 24.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
