"This is an opulent style, sourced entirely from the estate’s Greywacke river stone soil. It conjures images of sun-ripened apples, just fallen from trees, resting in the green grass, and a nearby stream weaving its way over rocks and stones. A kinetic line of acidity cuts through all the richness, leading into an endlessly long apple and stone finish. Savor this beauty now or cellar it till 2026, if you can bear the wait."

"Clos Henri's 2016 Sauvignon Blanc marries hints of snap peas and thyme with passion fruit and white grapefruit. It's a medium-bodied, silky-textured version of Marlborough SB that saw a small portion of oak aging and substantial lees aging to build textural richness. Lemon and grapefruit notes linger on the finish."
