Giesen Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The Giesen Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012 is pale yellow in colour with green hues. There are strong aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry and crushed herbs with a delicate mix of tomato and blackcurrant leaf. The palate has wonderful vibrancy and fruit weight, perfectly balanced with crisp and clean acidity culminating in a lengthy finish.

Floral, spicy high tones to the aromas of peach, dried herbs and licorice. Not a fleshy style but juicy and suave, with good penetration and spicy lift to the tropical fruit and citrus flavors. Very easy to drink.

A vivid, racy white, featuring grapefruit, lime and green apple notes that are juicy and refreshing. Light-bodied and extremely focused. Drink now.

Pale yellow colour. The bouquet is fresh with aromas of pawpaw, fresh citrus and lime juice with a distinctive herbal note. The palate has intense tropical fruit flavours combined with classic nettle and gooseberry flavours on a medium bodied, textural palate. Focused acidity provides length to a refreshing zesty fruit finish.

Grassy, with very good intensity to the mineral and tart lime flavors. Drink now.

Very reticent nose. Offers rather polite flavors of grapefruit, orange peel and ripe pear. Not showing much personality today, but finishes dry and clean.
