Giesen (Marlborough) 2020 The Brothers Chardonnay

Winery notes 
"Aromas are bright with white peach, meyer lemon, toasted hazelnut and subtle flint. The palate is rich and concentrated with bright zest balancing the fresh sweetness. Ripe lemon and peach flavours, with grapefruit on the finish.

The wine was fermented then matured in predominately French oak hogsheads and puncheons along with 1000L German oak Fuder barrels for 10 months. Oak age varied from one year old barrels, with the majority three year old(78%). This selection was to ensure the wine had subtle oak character which allowed the fruit to shine. The wine was fined and filtered for bottling."

Giesen Estate (NZ) 2020 Pinot Gris

4.5 stars 91 - Sam Kim Wine Orbit

Each parcel of Pinot Gris is harvested at optimum ripeness. Short skin contact adds flavour and texture to the wine. Fermented in stainless steel tanks, we used very select aromatic yeasts to make the wine more intense. We stopped the ferment early to retain a small amount of acidity and natural sugar to give the wine it’s off-dryness. The wine was held on lees for two months to help build mouth feel & texture, then blended and bottled.

Giesen Estate (NZ) 2021 Riesling

Gold Medal - Melbourne International wine competition
 
This Riesling has become a New Zealand legend, highly awarded and the country’s number one seller. It’s not surprising given its striking notes of lime and mandarin and its delicious, succulent juicy sweetness finished with a clean acid backbone. 

The 2021 Estate Riesling is a blend from two of New Zealand’s outstanding cool climate grape growing regions. Waipara, with its cool, dry climate and good sunshine and Marlborough, renowned for its long warm days and cool evenings. With yields down in both regions, the remaining grapes enjoyed a long growing season helped by settled weather leading into harvest. The 2021 vintage will be long remembered as an outstanding vintage, with wines bursting with concentrated flavours.
