Giesen Wines vineyards are situated in Marlborough, New Zealand. Low yielding grape vines grown in a cool climate is what makes their wine unique. Complex fruit aromas make them enjoyable young, but refreshing acidity gives the wines backbone for long aging in the bottle. Wines with "Vintage Character" (something found only in the traditional viticultural areas of Europe) give a great variety of unique wines, year after year.

    Peach and honey aromas are inviting and quite pronounced. Clean palate of sugared lemon, tart lemon and a tart acidity with a bit of a melon note coming through under the acidity which is quite fresh in the front of the mouth. The finish is a bit hot with a neutral wooded note. Read More
