Clos Henri Marlborough Pinot Noir, Organic, red berries, supple, complex New Zealand red wine. Clos Henri organic Pinot Noir is a very French style of Pinot Noir from Sancerre originating producer Henri Bourgeois. Hand-harvested and fermented in open fermenters, it undergoes gentle hand plunging before being matured for a year in 30% new oak. The result is mocha and red berry aromas, a plump palate and ripe concentrated fruit, with beautifully integrated tannins. Real finesse from these low yielding vines.

This is a 96 hectare property bought by the Bourgeois wine family (of Sancerre Fame) in 2001.

They are committed to maintaining the bio-diversity of the farm and have plented various legumes and other crops over the last 15 years whilst converting the estate steadily to vineyard. The site is unique in that it consists of several soil types – gravels and clays as well as sloping land and hillsides. The gravel is found in Renwick: it’s this that contributes to the fame of the region’s Sauvignon. The result of ancient rivers this type of soil provides wines with elegance and crispness. The second kind of soil is found in Broadbridge, a greyish-brown clay with ochre tints (indicating a high iron content), appropriate to the cultivation of Pinot Noir. Wines produced here are round with complex aromas and good length. The final soil in Clos Henri, a kind of yellow-grey clay, is to be found on the very steep slopes of Wither where the vines enjoy excellent exposure to the sun. All these soils have only been used for pasture and never exposed to insecticides, herbicides or any other form of chemical treatments. The Bourgeois family are committed to maintain the local biodiversity.
