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.

A great range of aromas and flavors that seem to change and evolve in the glass. We get citrus, crushed herbs and a distinctive gooseberry lift with green notes reminiscent of fresh pea pods but also a sweet leafy boxwood aroma. On the palate there are flavors of grapefruit and red capsicum where mid palate fruit sweetness is balanced by a fresh, lively citrus acidity.
