Very tasteful, rich Sauvignon Blanc from the New Zealand winery Clos Henri, a special project in Marlborough that was started by the famous wine family Bourgeois from Sancerre, France.

This white Petit Clos is a pleasant wine with fine hints of citrus fruits and yellow kiwi. The taste of the wine is fresh, balanced and round. Very tasteful, nicely dry, lively with pleasant fine acids and yet also a kind of mildness and richness. The palate is caressed by a rich, juicy mouthfeel, dominated by exotic fruits, with a pleasant mineral note. This Sauvignon Blanc is intensely fragrant, beautifully open and invigorating, even exotic with pineapple and gooseberries. The color is light straw yellow with a nice green hint. The wine has a powerful aftertaste.

The wine works very well as an aperitif, and is also delicious with a terrine of fish with vegetables, salads (for example with goat cheese), and warm vegetable pie.

In the French tradition, the entire vineyard is planted in high density. This forces the vines to compete with each other, resulting in highly concentrated grapes and more mineral flavors in the wine. Petit Clos wines come from younger vines that grow on different soil types. The younger Sauvignon vines are on 3 different soil types.

This wine is certified organic.
