    Winemaker Notes

    Lifted, fresh aromas of sweet gooseberry, ripe citrus and dried cut grass with a distinctive herbal note. Classic nettle and gooseberry flavours combine with dry, citrus flavours on a medium bodied, textural palate. Focused acidity provides length and a refreshing zest to the finish.

    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

    An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

    The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

    Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
