Youthful and fresh aromas of wild strawberries and bright red fruits evolves with subtle layers of spice and liquorice. At first dominated by plum and cherry, the textural palate develops spice and toasted wood tones. Svelte tannins and juicy acidity carry this wine on to a gentle, peppery finish.
This adventure started in 2000. Nestled under the southern foothills of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Clos Henri is the wine estate meticulously established and organically run by the famous Sancerre wine growing family of Henri Bourgeois. Uniting 10 generations of winegrowing know-how from the Bourgeois family, Clos Henri crafts textural and elegant wines, capturing the intense Marlborough character with the aim to reveal the identity of the Clos Henri terroir and a true sense of place in the wines. From the three different soil types of the estate, partially comprised of a clay hill slope, the family uses the best of French and New World winegrowing techniques to capture the essence of Marlborough’s intense character and reveal the identity and depth of the Clos Henri terroir.
