44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot - Célestiale is Clos du Soleil's Bordeaux-style blend that is soft and full of fruit with an elegant and classic structure. Each variety and each vineyard block was harvested separately, when judged to be at optimal maturity. Each lot was gently destemmed and then after a moderate cold soak the fruit was fermented in concrete tanks. Following pressing, the wines were aged in 100% French oak barrels for 15 months. Only those barrels displaying the ideal characteristics for our Célestiale blend were selected for this wine. Unfined, this wine was gently filtered prior to bottling under screw cap, allowing us to preserve all of this wine’s freshness and approachability. All of the same skill, care and time-honoured artisanal winemaking techniques go into making this wine as Signature, the flagship wine of Clos du Soleil.
