Gold Medal – New Zealand Aromatic Wine Show 2016


Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"We hand pick the fruit from Matthews Lane vineyard ensuring each parcel of fruit is in pristine condition. After a yeast starter the juice rests on yeast lees for 11 months in new 1,000L German Oak Fuder Barrels. The use of Fuder barrels in this way ensures our Single Vineyard white wines develop a greater complexity and refinement because oak doesn’t dominate.The ratio of wine in contact with the barrel surface is less than smaller barrels so oak pick up is less. The staves of Fuder barrels are thicker which means the temperature of ferment tends to be warmer and we find the fruit characters gain greater depth and complexity."


93/100 Ray Jordan, Australian Wine Writer (2014 Vintage)
"This might turn you towards savvies. It's out there. Touch of leesy gunmetal character on the nose. Gets a lot of wild yeast character and the combination of the oak and the natural fruit intensity takes the aromatic complexity to another zone. An intense wine with a creamy texture and lifted notes of thyme and sweet fruit. Best drinking now to 2020."


91/100 Wine Enthusiast, March 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"Over one million cuttings from the Matthews Lane Vineyard have been supplied to nurseries—and therefore wineries—around Marlborough, so in theory, there's a small piece of it in many of the wines from the region. It's special, then, to taste Giesen's single-vineyard version, aged in 1000 litre German fuders. Trademark regional characters of jalepeño, green beans and grass marry with lemon balm, pressed yellow flowers and butter, all ensconced in an oily texture, slippery acidity and a grassy finish."
