B.C Wine if the week!

Clos Du Soleil

Capella 2014

 Hey Folks, I am back ! Did you miss me?

After a month of moving ( we bought a house ) it has been a horribly busy time ! So I am back with a real goodie today! Get ready for a game breaker people !

I visited Clos du Soleil last year, a charming Biodynamic winery in the Similkameen Valley with Master wine maker Spencer Massie at the helm

We picked up a few bottle of course …   thanks again to Luke Whithall for the Wine tasting and the very informative tour of the winery! It was a spectacular day!

Last night was a super warm evening and my hubby and I broke out a bottle of Capella 2014.  This is Clos’s top quality  white Bordeaux . The Grapes are handpicked and fermented and aged in barrel.

Normally I would save this for oysters, but hell… we wanted a good bottle of wine !  Because, we deserve it of course, a bunch of hard working folks that we are.

Capella was nothing short of elegant and captured our moment perfectly.  This old world style Sauvignon blanc and Semillon blend opens with an amazing Mineral nose , Meyer Lemon, Fresh straw and delicately coats the palate with a toasty Oak, notes of Lychee , earth and straw. This elegant wine has body and complexity. The finish is Long and continues with the richness you experience at the start !

5/5 for me $28

You can visit their wine club or your neighborhood VQA store for a bottle !

We are holding on to a few bottles of their Signature Bordeaux Style blend which I will report to you at a later date of maturity of the wine !

Happy Summer and see you next week from Naramata !
