Winemaker Notes

Complex expression of Sauvignon Blanc with dry grass, thyme and sweet ripe fruits. A wine that is soft up front with gentle, flowing almost creamy texture with a very long finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Fuder is German for a large wooden vessel, used in this case for the fermentation and aging of wine. Hints of struck-match complexity mark the nose, giving way to notes of grilled nectarine. The wine is full and rich in the mouth, with a mouthwatering finish that marries stone fruit and pink grapefruit into a stunning finale.
JS 92
James Suckling
A complex, waxy and textural take on the theme, lime and lemon fruits, hints of tropicals, honeysuckle and stony elements, the palate is supple, smooth and even, more lemon and tropicals here, pineapple to close. Drink now, really open.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
All of the Giesen "The Fuder" wines are made in large, 1,000-liter German oak fuders and come from single vineyards. The oak stands out a bit on the 2013 The Fuder Matthews Lane Sauvignon Blanc, opening with cedar notes over a peach and citrus fruit core, plus passion fruit and some bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is concentrated with rich, savory flavors, lively acidity and a good long finish.

Giesen, New Zealand
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
