Clos du Soleil Capella 2021

British Columbia, CanadaI said it last year, and this vintage just hammers home the point: Capella is one of the most consistent and reliable wines in British Columbia. There's an exuberance to the fruit in 2021, while still holding true to the Clos do Soleil ethos of restraint and elegance. There's a lovely interplay of lemon, white grapefruit, gooseberry, and white peach, framed by savoury notes of desert herbs, beeswax, and lees. It's complex, textured, and beautifully balanced, easily rivalling white Bordeaux double or triple the price. I'm sure the French wish they had that Similkameen minerality.Tasted: 01 April 2023Tasted by: Prices:
