Le Petit Clos Sauvignon Blanc, organic, grapefruit, tangy, minerally New Zealand white wine. Le Petit Clos organic Sauvignon Blanc from old-new-world-straddling producer Henri Bourgeois is a superb mini-me of the estate’s Clos Henri Sauvignon. Grapefruit and tangerine are at the lees, with a steely minerality that gives it a finesse more akin to French Sauvignon. Made from young vines and best drunk young – an excellent NZ SB that doesn’t hit you in the face but has some subtlety without breaking the bank.
