Clos du Soleil Estate Reserve White 2014

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe ’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.Tasted: 08 July 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 60.00 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
