Giesen really can do no wrong and Vineyard Selection is another rock solid range from their extensive portfolio. It takes things up a notch from their Estate range, and celebrates the diverse climates and soil types that contribute to individual fruit characteristics.
2019 was a wonder vintage in Hawke's Bay and this merlot is beautifully soft, supple and generous. It pairs perfectly with beef wellington. Delicious!
The winery writes "Juicy damson plum, bright red currant, alluring mocha spice and a hint of vanilla. From its enticing fragrance, this Merlot delivers soft, elegant fruit intensity. The purity of its ripe fruit is enhanced by soft tannin."
