Clos du Soleil Celestiale 2019
CLOS DU SOLEIL
Each variety and each vineyard block was harvested separately, when judged to be at optimal maturity. Each lot was gently destemmed and then after a moderate cold soak the fruit was fermented in concrete tanks. Following pressing, the wines were aged in 100% French oak barrels for 15 months. Only those barrels displaying the ideal characteristics for our Célestiale blend were selected for this wine. Unfined, this wine was gently filtered prior to bottling under screw cap, allowing us to preserve all of this wine’s freshness and approachability.
The taster is greeted with aromas of cedar, fresh ripe raspberries and blackberries, and pencil lead.
On the palate the wine is soft and layered, dominated by fresh ripe fruit flavours of raspberry, blackberry, and pomegranate, with more subtle notes of forest undergrowth and spice, with juicy acidity.
