A sure winner on the value stakes, Giesen Riesling is so popular because of its perfect balance of sweetness and acid, making it just oh so drinkable. It's great to have a few bottles on hand for when you just want something easy, delicious and very cost effective!

Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"A vivacious Riesling with succulent citrus blossom, alluring lime and sweet mandarin with a delightfully crisp, refreshing off-dry finish. This Riesling brings together outstanding fruit from two of New Zealand’s pre-eminent Riesling areas – Marlborough & Waipara. The fruit selected from Marlborough adds a textural element, richness, citrus flavours and ageability to the wine. Waipara gives us our fabulous floral aromatics. There is a reason this is New Zealand’s favourite Riesling – try it for yourself."

92/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, February 2024 (2023 Vintage)
"Delicately luscious riesling with passionfruit, lime zest, a hint of honey and grapefruit flavours. The wine has a pleasing sweet/sour tension that emphasises its varietal character. A real crowd-pleaser. "

Reviews for previous vintages below…

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2022 Vintage)
"According to retailers, this popular label commands about 20 per cent of the total market for Riesling in New Zealand. Offering great value, the 2022 vintage was grown in Marlborough and Waipara, North Canterbury. Bright, light lemon/green, it is instantly appealing, with loads of fresh, vigorous, peachy, slightly appley flavour, gentle sweetness (39 grams/litre of residual sugar), appetising acidity, and a finely balanced, lingering finish. Delicious young."

4 ½ Stars Yvonne Lorkin, March 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"This chirpy little supermarket staple has won so many awards over recent decades that the Giesen brothers have had to add support struts to the trophy cabinet to cope with the weight of all the heavy metal. Crafted from fruit grown around the country, this style might weigh in at a demure 11% alc, yet it roars with citrus saturation, lime, green apple, clover honey and a tweak of tangerine to finish. It’s that splishy splash of sweetness which makes it pair perfectly with this incredibly aromatic, tongue-tingler of a curry."

95/100 NWWA, Judges Comments (2021 Vintage)
"A noble grape of Germany, the Giesen brothers are experts at growing this variety in New Zealand. The off-dry style from 2021 is a blend of grapes from Marlborough and Waipara and is naturally lighter in alcohol (10% ABV). Exquisitely balanced, juicy and laden with lime and mandarin, this is a fabulous aperitif and great with soft cheese."

18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, October 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"This is the biggest-selling Riesling in New Zealand and is medium sweet with 9.5% ABV and a great balance of acidity, which comes from cool South Island nights. The 2020 vintage was a great one for quality thanks to long, warm, dry autumn weather and despite challenges thrown up by the global pandemic. This wine has a medium body, intense flavours of peach and ripe mandarin with a long, flavoursome finish and juicy texture."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"It is splendidly fruited and instantly appealing on the nose showing ripe apple, mango, orange peel and floral characters, leading to a vibrant palate that is light and juicy. The wine offers attractive sweetness and supple mouthfeel, wonderfully supported by refreshing acidity, making it a fabulous drink. Style: Medium. At its best: now to 2025."

4 Stars & Best Buy Cuisine Riesling Tasting, February 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Pretty, elegant and floral with light white blossom and lush red apple aromas. A sweet palate with plenty of acid backbone to hold everything in balance providing a delightful – almost irresistible – moreish quality to this wine. Quite insatiable."
