The Wairau Valley in the wine-rich Marlborough region of New Zealand is home to many remarkable wine brands. Clos Henri is one of them. The Bourgeois family has been running this wine brand for over 10 generations now. The France-based Bourgeois family is one of the most highly respected and established wine growers in the Loire Valley. It was during 1952 that the 8th generation Bourgeois family member, Henri, got into full-fledged winemaking and started with the terroir-driven approach to craft high-quality wines. Today, with over 120 vineyards spread across 72 hectares, Henri and his family own the largest area of vineyard in this region. A distinct feature of the Clos Henri wine brand is the quality of its terroir. Here, you will find close to three different soil types in the 110-hectare vineyard. Unlike the traditional Marlborough style of vine-planting, Clos Henri follows a unique high-density vine planting style at close to 6000 plants per hectare. The double guyot fruit pruning system ensure that the fruit gets positioned well and thus uniformly ripened.

‘Formerly our Petit Clos, it is originally named for the young vines from which they were lovingly crafted. Moving away from ‘Petit Clos’ has been a natural evolution for this range, as these vines are now mature. They are stunning examples of the potential of our estate.’

The wine is bright and inviting. The 2022 showcases notes of ripe citrus, orange blossom and white peach. Juicy, with rich ripe stone fruits, the palate offers a refreshing acidity with satisfying weight and length. The finish lingers on the palate with a refreshing mineral note to it.  A wine with excellent purity of place.
