Clos du Soleil Capella 2022

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis 71/29 blend of sauvignon blanc and sémillon comes from Whispered Secret and Les Collines Vineyards in Keremeos. The juice was barrel fermented in French puncheons using ambient yeast, and then aged for nine months on its lees. It's restrained and elegant, with a combination of white grapefruit and lemon that beautifully reflects the more moderate 2022 vintage, all lifted by perfumed honeysuckle and sagebrush aromatics. Textured and precise, with excellent concentration and tension, this needs another few years in bottle to really show its potential. Incredible value, once again.Tasted: 23 December 2023Tasted by: Prices:
