Description

The second Estate Reserve White from Clos du Soleil, this wine is a true “vin de terroir” - a wine which speaks directly of that very special small patch of stony soil on which it was grown.

Nose: On the nose the wine is a dense assemblage of lime peel, wet stone, and grapefruit aromas.

Mouth: On the palate the wine is bone dry, with a strong and clean acidic structure, with loads of minerality piercing the green citrus and Anjou pear flavours, all the way through to the long, lingering finish. The firm structure will allow this to age for years. This elegant wine is the very definition of the wind-swept and stony Similkameen Valley.

The ’15 "Estate Reserve", a 71/29 mix of sauvignon blanc/sémillon all from the home vineyard in the Similkameen Valley is the first ever flagship white release from Clos du Soleil. The winemaking is minimal, and includes 100 percent wild ferment of the two grapes that are co-fermented. The blend spends eight months in oak puncheons. The nose is fresh and stony with complex aromas of citrus (lime) pear and white flowers. Similar flavours mark the palate with perfect acidity to support. Lovely complex, mineral white that speaks to the Similkameen. Perfect with fresh shucked oysters, or most white meats.
