NEW ZEALAND - Winning numerous international awards and accolades since the late 1980's makes Pinot Noir one of New Zealand's most sought-after varietals. A rich and complex wine that goes well with almost any entree.

The Burgundian style of the 2005 Clos Henri Pinot Noir earned an impressive 91 Point rating from the Wine Spectator, “Fragrant and stylish, with a supple wave of cherry, raspberry, floral and Asian spice nuances. The flavors gain momentum, with nicely integrated oak and fine-grained tannins.” This superior Pinot also captured a 90 Point score from Wine Review Online, “Marlborough has been lent a notable measure of global prestige by the establishment of vineyards and a winery by Sancerre’s famous firm of Henri Bourgeois. They have been producing excellent Pinot Noir since 2003.”

On JancisRobinson.com, the International fine wine author’s 4 Star out of 5 Star review reads, “The Clos Henri Pinot Noir 2005 expresses generous delicate plum and cherry aromas, with a hint of cinnamon and clove on the nose. This 2005 vintage reveals pleasant flinty notes. Its roundness in the mouth provoques delicious sensations. If you are patient enough to age it for a few years, you will be rewarded and delighted by its beautiful balance.” Dorian Wild, Sydney City Press writes, “This Pinot is sublime.”
