Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, made by one of the stalwarts.
Fresh and vibrant, with lively lime and lemongrass aromas and gooseberry flavours.
France might be the grape's spiritual home, but it seems quite happy here too.
Perfect with light chicken dishes.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years

Of the 2012 vintage, The Wine Gang said: Flattering, ripe gooseberry and tropical fruit on the nose and a punchy, decisively green-fruited palate with a zesty lemon and sea-salt finish.
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.
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.
