Clos du Soleil's ultimate expression of Sauvignon Blanc, Capella is a mouth-watering wine at once both elegant and rich. The complex nose presents an array of ripe fruit aromas including grapefruit, lemon zest, and pineapple, with remarkable minerality. In the mouth the wine presents lush flavours of passionfruit, grapefruit, and sun-ripened citrus, leaving an impression of richness despite the racy acidity. Delicious now, yet the complexity of this wine will only continue to develop with age.
The complex nose offers up a heady mix of honeydew melon, ripe lime, grapefruit and pineapple.
The soft mouthfeel envelops the palate with flavours of grapefruit, passionfruit and lime structured by crisp acidity, a mineral backbone and a long finish.
Lightly coloured and pale with slight straw and lemon coloration.
Capella makes for an elegant pairing with fresh seafood, herb-crusted pork, or veal scallopini.
