There's something to be said about consistency especially when it's consistently good and Giesen The Brothers Pinot Noir is certainly that. Access to fruit from high quality Marlborough Southern Valleys vineyards and great winemaking is obviously upping the game for Pinot Noir coming from Giesen.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Dark cherry and blackberry aromas pair elegantly with delicate floral aromas, and are backed up by spicy complexity of clove and cinnamon. A rich palate, with ample fine, chalky tannin adding structure and length to this wine. Balanced acidity lends energy and elegance.

The fruit for this vintage was hand-selected from throughout the Southern Valleys, a region renowned for growing Pinot Noir with great colour, excellent texture and ripeness.

The 2017 growing season delivered a smaller than predicted crop ensuring the vibrant, fruit-driven wines the region is so well known for. Nature threw in some challenges along the way, with a major earthquake, a cool and windy summer and stints of rain in autumn. The temperature cooled as summer progressed and inclement weather reduced yield, helping balance the crop and ensuring concentrated flavours and ripening potential in the fruit.

The best parcels of fruit from the Southern Valleys are managed in small batches, with a portion receiving whole bunch fermentation. A “hands off” approach was use to retain colour and allow the fruit to showcase distinct Marlborough Pinot Noir character. The wine was aged in a mix of new and old French oak 300L barriques from Giesen’s French cooper—chosen because it gives a unique style which helps to lengthen the wine."

93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Scents of red cherry, strawberry, briar and brambles, white pepper, pretty fragrance here. Succulent, pomegranate and cranberry flavours and that chew you get with both. Lightly smoky too. Good length of flavour too. Nice feel here. Lots of quiet structure too. Great to see tannin profile like this in Marlborough pinot."


Mundus Vini 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"With aromas of currants, cherry, spice and charred wood. The palate is generous with striking bramble and cedar notes, combined with a fine grain tannin adding focus to finish."
