Clos du Soleil Signature Red
CLOS DU SOLEIL
Signature is our flagship blend of red Bordeaux varieties, produced by hand, and aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. The 2016 vintage is the product of a long growing season of more moderate temperatures and was perfect for producing this classically styled iconic wine. Enjoyable in its youth, the balance and structure of this wine will ensure its ability to age for many years.
The taster is enveloped in a dense aromatic profile of raspberry and blackberry, with hints of cassis bud and violet.
On the palate the wine is layered with flavours of sun-ripened cherries, raspberry, cassis, mint and blackberry, with complex notes of graphite, sagebrush and pepper and a delightful freshness. Structure is provided by the soft but full tannins, and a stony mineral quality to the long finish.
