Since 2009 Giesen Wines has made a significant investment in organics. By 2015 20% of the company’s Marlborough vineyards will be certified organic or in transition. The Giesen Organic Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of three vineyards located in Marlborough’s renowned Wairau Valley, each site certified with Bio-Gro New Zealand.

This wine exudes vibrant citrus flavours melded with fennel and nettle aromas, it’s a full bodied wine with generous fruit weight.

Description

Vineyard

Marlborough, Wairau Valley. Giesen Stump Ck 29% and two contract blocks – Herkt 27%, Belmonte 44%. Organic Certification with BioGro NZ.

Winemaking

Blocks harvested at optimum ripeness, pressing commenced immediately as the fruit arrived at the vineyard. Each vineyard was kept separate to allow for true vineyard expression to show. Tanks were floated for clarity and juice lees were reincorporated into each vineyard parcel before fermentation. Held in stainless steel on light lees before blending in late May. A light protein fine with no palate fining. Bottling in early July.
