About the Wine

In the heart of Sancerre, the Bourgeois Family has been making incredible wines for ten generations. Their dedication to expressing the true flavors of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir through terroir-driven winemaking has earned them immense respect. 

But their story doesn't stop in France. The Bourgeois Family embarked on a 12-year adventure that led them to the stunning vineyards of Marlborough, New Zealand. Here, in the enchanting Wairau Valley, shaped by ancient glaciers, they found a new home for their winemaking passion. 

Damien Yvon is the General Manager and Head Winemaker. He brings the French winemaking heritage to New Zealand. His passion and attention to detail inspire his dedicated team. He works hand in hand with agronomist, Georges Von Der Decken, who is completely committed to sustainable farming. 

At Clos Henri, they believe in harmony between nature and viticulture. Organic and biodynamic methods aren't just sustainable; they produce superior, terroir-driven wines. Their winemaking celebrates simplicity, low intervention, and few additives, resulting in wines with a distinctive character.

Clos Henri boasts three distinct soil types across their 270 acres: Glacial Stones, Broadbridge Clay, and Wither Clay. These soils are the result of millions of years of geological history, shaped by glaciers and tectonic movements.

This Sauvignon Blanc is named after the Otiran Glaciation period, Otira Glacial Stones Sauvignon Blanc embodies Marlborough's essence. It offers crisp minerality like the glacier itself, with an elegant finesse that enchants your senses.

Year after year, this stunning Sauv Blanc has been a critic's darling, with James Suckling stating that it is "One of the best NZ Sauvignons out there".

Aging: 6 months on stainless steel tanks and barrels

Tasting Notes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is a sensory delight. Showing citrus and tropical fruit aromas, complemented by a touch of minerality. With an expressive and fresh character, it strikes a perfect balance between tension and fruit depth. This wine is full of personality. Think of it more like a Sancerre than a typical NZ Sauvignon Blanc. 


Lemons, white pears, jasmine, chalk and biscuits on the nose, with a touch of smoked almonds. It's creamy, layered and mineral, with a medium body. Seamless and elegant. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. ~93 James Suckling
