Clos du Soleil Capella
Capella is Clos du Soleil’s flagship white Bordeaux-style wine. A classic blend of 88% Sauvignon Blanc and 12% Sémillon, this is a wine of grace, elegance, and age-worthy structure. Sporting a light golden-hue in the glass, this beautiful wine greets the drinker with aromas of pink grapefruit, lemon jelly and lime zest. On the palate the wine is rich and mouth filling, yet crisp and bone-dry. Mouth-watering, ripe lime zest is dominant, but quickly melds into flavour of peach, lemonade, and a hint of passion fruit, and a lively sense of minerality through to the long finish.
Complex and engaging, this is a seafood wine par-excellence: sea bass, tuna, crab, or oysters would be a knockout. Roast chicken or herb-crusted pork would be excellent too. Enjoyable now, this is a wine that will develop an added sense of richness with age.
