Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is aromatically expressive and generously flavoured with freshly cut herbs, scrumptious tropical fruit with subtle notes of blackcurrant leaf.

We select fruit from vineyards throughout the Wairau Valley and Awatere Valley in the Marlborough wine region. This scope gives us the ability to consistently blend to our Giesen style year in, year out.

The fruit we select from the Wairau Valley adds brightness, tropical and citrus flavours, as well as tighter acidity to our Giesen Estate Sauvignon Blanc blend.

Compared to the Wairau Valley, the Awatere Valley is slightly cooler, drier, windier with higher elevation. The fruit selected from the Awatere Valley for this wine adds fullness, richness, the tropical notes are more grilled, herbal notes are more dry.

The Wairau Valley portion of our Giesen Estate Sauvignon Blanc wine forms the backbone of the blend. Historically, the Wairau Valley is where the first Sauvignon Blanc wines came from, this is where our first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc came from, it is the Wairau Valley where we own 13 vineyards and source the majority of the fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc wines."


91/100 Wilfred Wong of Wine.com, June 2017 (USA) (2016 Vintage)
"Over the last decade, I have enjoyed a lot of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. Out of the many countries where this grape variety is readily grown—including France, Spain, Chile, South Africa, Italy, and the USA—New Zealand has been one of my favourite choices. The 2016 Giesen is truly excellent. This wine excels in purity of fruit. It is loaded with grapefruit peel, dried herbs, and a pleasing bouquet of flowers, and is one of the best examples in the US marketplace. Pair with linguine and mussels in a garlic white wine reduction sauce, and you will understand why I feel this way."
