Mouthwatering blast of zesty, verdant, nettle, grass cuttings and flowering currant pisazz (2011 Vintage)
"This bowled me over with its mouthwatering blast of zesty, verdant, nettle, grass cuttings and flowering currant pisazz. All that, and closing on the zingy, tropical fruit note that has made Marlborough sauvignon so famous, effortlessly put Giesen ahead of the pack. Made with grapes from 32 plots in the Wairau valley, Giesen is just the job served with asparagus, or an Asian-spiced salad. (Jane MacQuitty, The Times, 21st July 2012)"
