Clos du Soleil Estate Red Reserve 2017
CLOS DU SOLEIL
The 2017 vintage is nuanced and complex, with a classic structure. The nose immediately signals the uniqueness of this wine: aromas of stones, graphite, cigar box, spice and forest undergrowth, layered over ripe black berry fruit: blackberry and blackcurrant. On the palate the wine is full and complex, with soft but full tannins, and fresh acidity, all riding on waves of blackcurrant, raspberry and blackberry, on a spine of minerality – wet river stones and graphite, leading to a long, multi-faceted finished. This elegant wine provides loads of pleasure now, but with the structure and density to last for many years.
