A brilliant example of plush, Awatere Sauvignon Blanc from the talented Giesen winemaking team. Palate texture is the key here and this vibrant wine is a luxuriously silky style that slips through the mouth with the punchy flavours of Giesen's best fruit from the 2019 vintage. Some oak aging adds further weight and mouthfeel without dominating the fresh fruit characters of this classic Awatere release. Exemplary.
The winery writes "Bright aromatic notes of blackcurrant leaf, green pineapple and crushed nettle. A mouth-watering crispness of grapefruit and flintiness with a delicate smoky oak on the finish."
