Pale straw in colour. Vibrant and inviting, the bouquet has 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. Showing excellent purity of place, there is a lingering minerality on the finish.

The famille Bourgeois embraced their new found soil with great enthusiasm, eager to begin anew without the restrictions they are encumbered with in France. Local wine producers were intrigued to see how the well-known Sancerre winemaker would plant and vinify their wines, and proud that New Zealand's celebrated Sauvignon Blanc region had been chosen. Despite their ten-generation history of producing Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the Loire Valley, the Bourgeois family placed strong emphasis on researching the viticultural practices of local winegrowers. This cooperation, the Clos Henri vineyard and the wine reflect the marriage of French-New Zealand experience. The Bourgeois New Zealand vineyard was christened 'Clos Henri', pronounced 'Klo Enrie' for two reasons; first as a homage to the patriarch of the Bourgeois family, Henri and secondly its vineyard of special terroir, or 'Clos'.
