Very good white wine. Dry with excellent tropical fruit flavors. Served well with light fruits and slightly chilled. Everyone liked this.

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.

Ripe fruit and herbal aromas blast from the glass of this lush Sauvignon Blanc. A sensuous blend of melon, pear, and a touch of snow pea and white pepper, balanced with clean, well-integrated acidity.

Vintage: 2009 05/22/2011

Light, bright and refreshing, more citrusy than herbal, with pretty lemon and tangerine notes echoing on the delicate finish.

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


External Review
Vintage: 2009 05/22/2011

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


External Review
Vintage: 2009 05/22/2011

Crisp, juicy and appealing for its lively apple, nectarine and citrus flavors, hinting at passion fruit on the zingy finish. Drink now.

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.
