Sauvignon Blanc (91%), Semillon (9%)
Capella is Clos du Soleil’s flagship white Bordeaux-style wine. A classic blend of 91% Sauvignon Blanc and 9% Semillon, this is a wine of grace and elegance. A pale gold in the glass, 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. 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.
