2015 Clos Henri Pinot Noir Marlborough BIO
Very tasteful, elegant Pinot Noir from the New Zealand winery Clos Henri, a special project in Marlborough that was started by the famous wine family Bourgeois from the Sancerre, France.
The Pinot noir of Marlborough thrives best on the clay soils of the Southern Valleys, as the producers of the region have found experimentally. There are also the sticks for this Pinot noir. They stand on two types of clay. The Broadbridge clay provides an elegant pinot noir, with soft tannin and the Wither clay for structure and depth. No irrigation is used, giving the wine a special power and depth. The grapes are harvested by hand. He gets more structure and delicious fruit through a cold soak of a week. This is followed by a fermentation without extreme peeling contact, to keep it nice and elegant. Maturation takes place on French barriques, a quarter of which are new, during 14 months. The character is that of a real New Zealand Pinot noir, so always a bit fuller and more powerful than his counterpart from the Sancerre. A special Burgundian glass!
The wine has a medium cherry red color in the glass. In the nose this Pinot is powerful, spicy with an intense pinot scent, smoky, with fine vanilla, black cherries and plums, with an alluring sultryness. In the mouth nice and intense, ripe and juicy, full and silky, a hint of licorice, nice acids, just a little bit of firmness makes it nicely exciting.
This wine is certified organic.
