You’ll love the chocolaty nose, its deep black fruit and subtle smoky aromas. The mouth follows with luscious fruit with freshness and lithe tannins. A wine made to enjoy! Ageing Potential: 2-3 years.

Wine maker notes
This wine is fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks to maintain the fruit aromas. However, to enrich the structure and gain in complexity, 9% is aged in new French oak barrels. This fine balance between the fruit and the oak enables to soften the tannins as well as develop a vibrant and charismatic Pinot Noir.
Clos Henri is the exciting new vineyard development in Marlborough, New Zealand begun by
the internationally recognised winemaking family of Henri Bourgeois of Sancerre, France.
For ten generations the family has crafted premium quality Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir wines and
in 2000 chose 109 hectares of native Marlborough pastures to continue their passion abroad.
The first Clos Henri wines have been made in 2003 and
subsequent vintages benefit from being made on the Clos Henri terroir.
