Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Our flagship wine, this is Marlborough with a Sancerre twist. Candied ginger and dehydrated mango are layered with soft notes of stone fruits and a subtle touch of oak. Wonderfully textural, the palate is structured while remaining rich and full bodied. A tingly salinity and intense minerality leaves a lengthy and full-bodied finish. Pair with lime and ginger scallops, crayfish, or pan-fried snapper.
A supple, full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc that fills the mouth with its floral scent. Sauvignon's angular frame is softened by an additional layer of savory complexity due to partial maturation in French oak barrels and aging on fine lees. The finish is a little tough, however; firm acidity combined with what seems to be a phenolic edge somewhat detracts from an otherwise gorgeous wine.
