Clos Henri Bel Echo Sauvignon Blanc 2017 Marlborough, New Zealand
Varieties: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
8 months aging in stainless steel tanks with lees stirring
A lovely expression of the 2017 vintage, the intense yet fine bouquet is laden with ripe gooseberry, magnolia and a chalky minerality. A soft minty freshess highlights the herbaceous side of the variety. The vibrant, lemony curd richness of the palate has a fresh acid backbone, demonstrating great balance and restraint.
