Clos du Soleil Signature Red 1.5L 2017
CLOS DU SOLEIL
Signature is the flagship blend of red Bordeaux varieties, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot. Produced by hand, and aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. The 2017 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 aromas of raspberry and blackberry, black currant, with hints of cassis bud and notable floral aromas such as violet.
On the palate the wine is layered with flavours of black cherry, raspberry, cassis, mint and blackberry, with complex notes of graphite, and sagebrush and a delightful freshness. Structure is provided by the soft but full tannins, and a stony mineral quality to the long finish.
