Clos du Soleil Saturday Oct 26th 3-6pm

Clos-du-Soleil-LogoSmClos du Soleil 2012 Fumé Blanc $19.90
The bold aromatic Sauvignon Blanc is tamed by the softer, delicately fruity Sémillon. Delicious fruit combines in the bottle to show a nose of intense tropical juiciness with notes of passionfruit, pineapple, peaches & cream, and a hint of spice. In the mouth it is fresh, clean, and balanced.

Clos du Soleil 2011 Capella $24.90
The 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. Gold Medal – Best White Wine in BC – BC Wine Awards October 2013

Clos du Soleil 2011 Célestiale $24.90
This juicy, approachable wine is a blend of all five red Bordeaux varietals. The 18 months spent in French oak barriques gives it structure and a glimmer of spice. It opens up to bright notes of strawberry and sweet red cherries, with rich hints of espresso and chocolate. In the mouth it’s plummy, full and round; nicely framed by well integrated, grainy tannins and weight.

Clos du Soleil Signature 2010 $39.90
This superb blend is a true contender for BC’s place on the world stage of premium red wine. Unfiltered and unfined, there are notes of cassis and blackberry that greet the nose. They are echoed on the palate with a soft note of oak that complements the dark berry fruit balanced with good acidity and black plum freshness. Decanting this wine opens up multiple layers of ripe black fruits in addition to darker essences of cocoa and espresso.
Gold Medal Best of Show, Gold Medal Plates 2012 – “2010 Signature blend was a clear standout for its finesse and complexity. It is an exceptional wine.”

Grower’s Series – Makepeace Merlot 2011 $24.90
Overlooking the Chopaka Bridge, between the Richter Pass and Cawston, the spectacular vineyard of the Makepeace family shines through this blockbuster Merlot. High-exposure south facing slopes, rocky soils, and cool nights provides the material for a wine that shows big chocolate right out of the glass, with notes of espresso, cassis, cherry, crushed black pepper . After a rich and round mouthful of plummy goodness, it shows astonishing balance – discrete warmth, velvety tannins, and just the right acidity to provide structure and longevity to a wine that speaks of the Similkameen’s sunny bench.
