    Winemaker Notes

    Color is a vibrant plum red. The bouquet has good intensity with hints of mushrooms and bramble with bright blackberry fruit and some spicy cherry. The Palate is medium bodied with lovely integrated oak and supple tannin.

    A silky, textural structure carries through to a fruit driven, vibrant finish.

    Giesen
    If it weren’t for the heat and the snakes, the Giesen brothers could well have settled in Australia. But after suffering in 40 degree temperatures and an incident involving a snake in a swimming pool, Theo Giesen decided that New Zealand was a more attractive option. Australia’s loss has been New Zealand’s gain. Theo and Alex were the first to arrive in New Zealand on their equivalent of an OE. They had initially planned to start a stone company, along similar lines to their family business back in Germany, but instead they bought land in Burnham, just outside of Christchurch, and planted vines. At the time, it was the southern most vineyard in the world… and many people thought they were a little crazy.

    While the brothers had some experience in growing grapes – their family had ‘hobby’ vines back in Germany – neither Theo nor Alex knew how to make wine. So it was up to Marcel to learn. Four years later, Marcel, now a qualified winemaker, joined his brothers in New Zealand.

    A lot has changed since those early days, but even though they are now old hands at the business, the brothers are all still very involved. They work closely with the winemaking and vineyard team, and they all still get a kick out of producing world class wine. The thrill of a new vintage never goes away.
