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.
This wine opens with aromas of lemon jelly, quince, and sun-ripened grapefruit.
On the palate the wine is full, rich, and brimming with ripe fruit: orchard peach and apricot, lemon, pink grapefruit, and a gentle hint of vanilla.
Showing a pale gold in the glass.
Complex, long and engaging, this is a wine which would pair equally well with herb-crusted roast chicken, tuna tartare with a citrus dressing, or just simplicity itself: an omelette with fresh herbs.
