TROPHY FOR CHAMPION RIESLING | NZIWS 2023
TROPHY FOR CHAMPION COMMERCIAL WHITE WINE | NZIWS 2023
DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL | NZIWS 2023
New Zealand's most popular Riesling by volume and value - in fact approximately 1 in 5 bottles of Riesling sold in New Zealand are this famous Giesen wine. Proudly medium dry and bursting with tangy citrus characters this is always one of the outright buys of the year.
Joelle Thomson writes "One of the most successful and delicious Rieslings made in this country each year. Succulent, richly citrusy, and beautifully balanced by concentrated lemon, lime and apple juice flavours. Acidity adds strucutre to this excellent young Riesling, which has outstanding length of flavour and offers a 'wow' factor in both taste and value for money."
The winery writes "A vivacious Riesling with succulent citrus blossom, alluring lime and sweet mandarin with a delightfully crisp, refreshing off-dry finish. This Riesling brings together outstanding fruit from two of New Zealand’s preeminent Riesling areas – Marlborough & Waipara. The fruit selected from Marlborough adds a textural element, richness, citrus flavours and ageability to the wine. Waipara gives us our fabulous floral aromatics. There is a reason this is New Zealand’s favourite Riesling – try it for yourself."
