Clay soils - Opulent Expressions
Clos Henri Pinot Noir
Indisputably, the southern clays (also called the Southern Valleys) enable Marlborough to play amongst the finest Pinot Noir terroirs in the world. Pinot Noir fruit sourced from our Broadbridge clay typically reveal femininity through its lacy tannins and delicate fruit palette, while fruit from Wither Clay captivates your senses by its more masculine characters, dense structure and fine tannins. Clos Henri is the elegant and complete expression of the best of these two clay soils. Its great aging potential is the ultimate revelation of the terroirs’ potential.
