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 beautiful wine greets the drinker with aromas of pink grapefruit, lemon jelly and lime zest.
On the palate the wine is rich and mouth filling, yet crisp and bone-dry. Mouth-watering, ripe lime zest is dominant, but quickly melds into flavour of peach, lemonade, and a hint of passion fruit, and a lively sense of minerality through to the long finish.
Sporting a light golden-hue in the glass.
Complex and engaging, this is a seafood wine par-excellence: sea bass, tuna, crab, or oysters would be a knockout. Roast chicken or herb-crusted pork would be excellent too.
