Clos Henri Pinot Noir 2011
Clos Henri Pinot Noir has a luscious array of dark red fruits, prune and plum on the nose with a hint of spice. Subtle oak emerges on a layered savory palate and delicate notes of sandalwood and elderflower make this a distinctive and complex style of Pinot Noir from Clos Henri's clay blocks.
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. Gathering 10 generations of know-how with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, the family has broadened their horizons and continue to craft exceptional wines in the New World. From the three different soil types of the estate, 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.
