Description

Visit www.giesen.co.nz for more information

Pale yellow colour with green hues. The aroma is fresh and vibrant with a base of rich tropical fruit but dominated especially when young, by fresh lime and lemongrass aromas as well as a fresh herb note. The palate shows a lovely fruit weight on the mid palate with flavours reminiscent of gooseberry and citrus and this is surrounded by a juicy, pure acidity giving the wine its zesty exuberance with a fresh, dry finish.

Vinification Details:

The growing season leading up to vintage 2011 ensured the vines were in excellent health with plenty of warm weather in December with regular rain. Most vineyards were pruned to 3 canes so cropping levels were maintained at moderate levels which was just as well considering the favourable growing conditions. Once the 2011 vintage started it was evident the flavour of the fruit on the vines had developed very well so we could often harvest a little earlier than usual at lower sugar levels therefore producing a wine with moderate alcohol. We had very little rain during harvest and the fruit was exceptionally clean, so picking decisions were relatively straight forward. The separate batches are fermented relatively cool using selected aromatic yeast strains. Our 2011 blend comes from 32 separate parcels spread the length and breadth of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley.

History:

There is a strength of character and determination about Giesen brothers Theo, Alex and Marcel who, despite the naysayers, made the bold leap to make wine in Marlborough in 1981. Over the last 30 years they have laid deep roots in the region, developing their own vineyards and simply making wines that people want to drink and that, is all there is to it. It is this staunch approach to consistency, with their passion always driving excellence that has enabled them to become one of the region’s eminent producers.

Regional Information:

Sitting in the top right-hand corner of New Zealand’s South Island, Marlborough is framed by picturesque waters and snow-capped mountains. Its highly sought-after Wairau Valley is an ancient river bed nestled between two mountain ranges and bordered to the North by Cook Strait. It’s a finite sub-region within the acclaimed Marlborough wine growing belt.
