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.

Nose

The wine greets the drinker with heady aromas of lemon curd, grapefruit, and subtle wisps of smoke.

Palate

On the palate there is an immediate sense of weight and richness as the wine envelops the taster with layers of ripe grapefruit, lime zest, as well as more tropical flavours of passion-fruit, quince and even hints of pineapple. There is a lively sense of saline minerality, stringing these flavours together into a unified whole, right through to the long finish. There is only the most subtle sense of oak, but more telling is the sense of volume and richness coming from the sur-lie barrel aging.

Appearance

Sporting a light golden hue in the glass.

Food Pairing

This is a complex and engaging seafood winepar-excellence: sea-bass, tuna, crab, or oysters would be a knock-out. Roast chicken or herb-crusted pork would be excellent too. Enjoyable now, this is a wine which will develop an added sense of richness with age.
