Winemaker Notes

The fruit and aroma spectrum shows a greater depth of tropical notes with a distinct greener profile running through as well. This is an aromatic blend displaying aromas of elderflower, kaffir lime leaf, pink grapefruit and dried herb. The palate has a vibrant citrus focus with considerable fruit concentration finishing crisp and bright.

James Suckling
Again, this is staggering value and quality for the volume made of this wine. Plenty of bright, ripe fruit here: passion fruit, lime and ripe melon, smooth and soft. Drink now.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
Bright, racy and juicy with grapefruit and citron; fresh, tangy and balanced with good length.

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.
