Winemaker Notes

Aromas of bright blueberry, blackberry, aniseed, followed by warm earth and cedar. This wine is a brooding blend of dense black fruits, bramble, earth and liquorice with ripe supple tannin, combining to produce a taut palate in its youth, but ensure structure as it ages.

The Giesen Single Vineyard Series, a limited edition collection of wines, crafted to give an honest reflection of the vineyard. These sites are located throughout the Wairau Valley and aim to showcase Marlborough's unique sub regions. Combining meticulous viticulture practices aimed to produce the finest, highly concentrated flavors. The winemakers ensure these wines speak for themselves; wild fermentation, rested in highest quality German & French oak, a perfect example of our single vineyard philosophy producing wines of the land.

JS 94
James Suckling
The 2012 vintage brings a deeper sense of fruit presence to this single-vineyard wine. It shows lighter florals but really pins itself to ripe, pristine fruits, with some cola and cedary oak in the mix, too. The palate rolls out a velvet-like texture of fine, fluffy tannins with bright cherry-berry flavor, smooth and nutty through the finish. Good balance - really pure. Drink now.

An amazing Pinot Noir that will have your palate doing cartwheels, the super lively 2012 Giesen Clayvin Pinot Noir is one of the world's finest in its category; rich and well defined, wild and pure; shows red fruits and orange peel on the palate; long, zingy finish. Should pair famously with grilled salmon, yes!
BH 91
Here the nose exhibits interesting notes of menthol and tangerine peel along with more typical aromas of various red berries, plum and soft spice nuances. I like the sense of underlying tension present on the delicious and nicely focused medium weight flavors that conclude in a dusty, sappy and well-balanced finale that is both persistent and complex. There is some wood evident but my sense is that it will be successfully integrated in due course.

Giesen Winery Video

From the Estate Range to the Single Vineyard Series, Giesen delivers stylish wines that showcase the riches of Marlborough.

Proudly family-owned by three brothers Theo, Alex and Marcel since 1981. Originally from Germany, today the Giesen brothers are the proprietors of 13 vineyards located throughout the highly sought after Wairau Valley, a subregion of Marlborough. The vineyards spread across the length & breadth of the valley giving a range of grape growing conditions and flavor. 20% of Giesen vineyards are certified organic or in transition.

The Giesens are the leading buyers of German 1,000 liter Fuder barrels in New Zealand. The Fuders are coveted in winemaking for the lees influence (due to large dimension across the bottom of the barrel) as well as the lighter oak toasting – which provides an aromatic sweetness. Giesen is known and respected for showcasing Marborough’s unique vineyard and vintage characteristics and to delivering superb vine-to-bottle quality across the range
