FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
An out and out Marlborough superclassic - both here and internationally where most of the burgeoning Giesen business is focused. This is a real powerhouse that explodes with classic Marlborough vibrancy and those characters flow through to the palate where the party is all on. Exciting wine for Sauvignon fans.
The winery writes "This Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is aromatically expressive and generously flavoured with freshly cut herbs, scrumptious tropical fruit with subtle notes of blackcurrant leaf."
Sam Kim writes "Pristine and fabulously fragrant, the wine shows passionfruit, green rockmelon, Granny Smith apple and lemon sorbet characters on the nose. The palate offers terrific fruit purity and intensity together with fine texture and bright acidity, making it instantly appealing."
