There is a strength of character and determination about Giesen brothers Theo, Alex and Marcel who, despite the naysayers, made the bold leap to make wine in Marlborough in 1981. Over the last 30 years they have laid deep roots in the region, developing their own vineyards and simply making wines that people want to drink. It is this staunch approach to consistency, with their passion always driving excellence that has enabled them to become one of the region's eminent producers.
In the heart of the Wairau Valley, Giesen harvests delicious, crisp and ripe fruit that exude tropical and lively flavours to delight your taste buds.
The juice is processed under anaerobic conditions and fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit inherent to Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was blended, fined, stabilised then filtered before bottling.
Great intensity that really jumps out of the glass showing ripe lime, nettles, quince and grapefruit with a lovely depth of aroma. The palate has a fleshy generosity that enhances the aroma profile. It has juicy mid-palate and very good length of flavour carried by vibrant focused acidity on a crisp finish.
