Petit Clos, translated from French to mean ‘small enclosed vineyard’, captures the essence of our estate. Petit Clos wines come from our youngest vines and are a blend of grapes from our 3 different soil types; Wither clay, Broadbridge clay and Greywacke river stone. Careful fruit selection and great attention to detail was carried out in the vineyard and the winery to match the beautiful terroir we have at Clos Henri. We aim to make Petit Clos Pinot Noir in a fruity yet elegant style with plenty of savoury fruit and structure.

Winery Tasting Notes
The nose is full of bright fruit flavors, wild strawberry, cherry and red current, with a slight savory and forest floor aroma.
In the mouth the wine shows hints of spicy subtle oak characters, with a nice cherry and raspberry aftertaste. It is juicy on the palate with well-balanced acidity and smooth fine tannins to finish in the mouth.
The ageing potential for this wine is between 3-4 years.
