A special cuvée launched in honor of this top biodynamic winery's 20-year anniversary, Clay is, as the name suggests, from vines with feet in the estate's Broadbridge clay soils. Native yeast, lees and old Austrian oak barrels all contribute to this pristine wine, which is round, elegant and poised. With aeration, it opens to a multifaceted nose of tangerine, white peach, orchard blossom and grass, shaded in salted cream. The palate is full-figured, with depth and weight but also freshness, length, a saline spine and a gorgeous chalky texture. There's a level of complexity here rarely seen in Marlborough that, frankly, raises the bar for the whole region. — Christina Pickard

Lemons, dill, cucumber, green apples and sea shells here. Evolves to fresh nutmeg and stones. Lots of phenolic tension, texture and intensity with a medium body. Tight for now. From organically grown grapes. Unfiltered. Drink or hold.

Product Description:

"Clos" (pronounced KLO) means "enclosed vineyard" and often tells the story of a unique place. Built on land humming with biodiversity and grounded by ancient Marlborough glacial soils, our organic estate was founded by tenth-generation French winemakers, the Bourgeois family. Clay Sauvignon Blanc is the ultimate refinement of our Waimaunga Windblown Clay terroir and offers an uncompromising and unique approach to Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. We encourage careful cellaring of our wines, which will reward you for many years to come" -Winery
