New Zealand — Marlborough • $28.95 • 91/100

This is a complex and compelling Sauvignon Blanc from Clos Henri. It is bright pale straw in colour. The nose is slightly smoky, with aromas of grapefruit, red apple, melon and white peach, lightly grassy, with a hint of green herbs. Dry, with high acidity and balanced alcohol, the wine is medium-bodied with some weight and depth from lees stirring. The fruit on the palate seems slightly riper, staying in the grapefruit and peach spectrum, but more firm than fruity, with a drying, mineral finish. A very accomplished Sauvignon Blanc. • LCBO Release 05/27/2017 • LCBO id#675629 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCHARTON HOBBS INC (Agent)
