Clos Henri Broadbridge Clay Sauvignon Blanc 2019
A complex Sauvignon Blanc made with wild yeast fermentation in 600 litre Austrian oak with ageing on fine yeast lees for 20 months with lees stirring, which builds body and rounded flavours in this savoury Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was bottled unfiltered with minimum handling.
Clos Henri began 22 years ago in Marlborough when the French Bourgeois family expanded their winemaking from the heart of Sancerre in the tiny village of Chavignol to Blenheim, in 2001. Now that their vines are 22 years of age , the family feels that they are only now starting to reflect and express the taste of the land. This family retains their land and winemaking in Chavignol where they have made wine for 11 generations.
