    Product Description

    Giesen Sauvignon Blanc showcases the famed Marlborough wine region. The wine that enchanted the world. This Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is aromatically expressive and generously flavored with freshly cut herbs and scrumptious tropical fruit with subtle notes of blackcurrant leaf. The fruit selected from the Wairau Valley adds brightness, tropical and citrus flavors, and tighter acidity to our Giesen Estate Sauvignon Blanc blend.

    Compared to the Wairau Valley, the Awatere Valley is slightly cooler, drier, and windier with higher elevation. The fruit selected from the Awatere Valley for this wine adds fullness and richness; the tropical notes are more grilled, and the herbal notes are drier.

    The Wairau Valley portion of Giesen Sauvignon Blanc wine forms the backbone of the blend. The Wairau Valley is where the first Sauvignon Blanc wines originated. They own 13 vineyards and source most of the fruit for the Sauvignon Blanc wines.

    As soon as the fruit arrives in the winery, the fruit is de-stemmed and gently pressed. Specially selected yeasts are added to the juice to start fermentation, which takes approximately three weeks at temperatures between 12 to 16 degrees Celsius.
