Marlborough blanc

Clos Henri Estate Sauvignon blanc

Bright and inviting, our Estate Sauvignon blanc has notes of ripe citrus, orange blossom and white peach. Juicy, with rich ripe stone fruits, the palate offers a refreshing acidity with satisfying weight and length. A wine showing excellent purity of place, there is a lingering mineral finish. Best served at 10°C to 12°C.

Serve as an aperitif by itself, or match with fresh fish, oysters and vegetarian dishes.

After the grapes are harvested, we gently press them and separate our free run from the hard pressings. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain purity of fruit and flavour. The wine is then aged on fine yeast lees for three months, while lees stirring over this time which allows the wine to stabilise naturally. The resulting wine is then textural, complex and round, showcasing our unique terroirs.

This Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant, delicately fruity and mineral with a textural finish.

Winegrowing & Terroir

Stemming from our French heritage, our entire vineyard is planted in high density. This forces the vines to compete with one another, resulting in highly concentrated grapes and more mineral flavours in the wine. These Sauvignon vines are situated on our 3 different soils types.
