Clos Henri, Sauvignon Blanc 2017 - Marlborough, New Zealand
An elegant and restrained wine, the delicate nose unfolds to reveal flint, white peach and fresh lemon zest. Fleshy, white stone fruits and extended lees ageing imbue the palate with a richness, while the core minerality leaves a precise and focused finish.

Pale yellow with greenish hues, aromas of very intense fruit with an emphasis on citrusy notes, mineral touches and delicate hints of vanilla. The palate is fresh with the natural acidity making the wine very vivacious and fruity; it has a medium body and a long, creamy finish.
