Célestiale is Clos du Soleil’s Bordeaux-style blend that is soft and full of fruit and a pure delight. This is immediately noticeable as the perfumed aromas from this wine bring to mind a summer evening of cherry pies, fresh plums and berry tarts. On the palate the wine is remarkably smooth and round, with flavours of black cherries, soft ripe Damson plums, and just a hint of spice. Aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, this is a wine built for enjoyment!

This is a blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. It has aromas of black cherry and black currants. One the palate, there is a generous helping of ripe, red fruit supported by long, ripe tannins.
About Clos du Soleil
The name Clos du Soleil, a French term meaning an enclosed Vineyard of the Sun, refers to the rocks, soil, and sun, which together define this very special piece of land where we grow our grapes. The enclosure is the mountain that forms a tall natural stone wall at the back of our vineyard, almost surrounding the cobbled terroir which lends its unique flavours to our wines. Most importantly, our name highlights the long days of sun which pour in on the Similkameen Bench, one of BC’s most unique and promising microclimates.
