Low yielding vines grown to a cool climate is what makes Giesen's wines so unique. Complex fruit aromas make them enjoyable whilst young, refreshing acidity gives the wines backbone for long aging in the bottle. Giesen aims for consistency of character and quality from vintage to vintage. Giesen's enthusiastic winemaking team work intensively to identify the harvest window for each parcel, that one or two days when fruit flavours are peaking. Following harvest and pressing, the juices are processed under anaerobic conditions and fermented relatively cool in tank to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit inherent to Sauvignon Blanc. The parcels are assembled and fined, stabilised and filtered before bottling.
Pale yellow colour. Bouquet is fresh with aromas of pawpaw, citrus and lime juice over a distinctive herbal note. The palate has intense tropical flavours combined with classic nettle and gooseberry on a medium bodied, textural palate. Focused acidity, combined with dry, puckery orchard citrus characters, provide length to a refreshing zesty finish. Match with NZ seafood, fried fishes and white meat terrines.
