Pinot Noir is harvested from several vineyards in Rapaura and Kaituna, Brancott, Waihopai and the Riverlands. All but one site is hand picked and hand sorted, artially crushed into fermenters and held cold on skins for up to a fortnight days for flavour extraction. Some batches remain in whole bunches so the stems could contribute tcomplexity. Fruit is for a combination of wild and added yeast vinification for twelve to twenty days. Upon completion, the wine remains on skins four days before pressing into 225L and 300L seasoned French oak barrels for natural malolactic, ageing and assemblage followed by a light egg white fining and filtration.
 
Bright plum red colour. Vibrant red fruit aromas, spicy vanilla, cinnamon and savoury, earthy notes. The vibrancy carries through to the palate where succulent fruit weight is complemented by soft, round tannins and a long, dry, flavoursome let's have another glass finish. Remove the screwcap and allow the wine to breathe for fifteen minutes before pouring, or decant. Partner with spicy entrees, mushroom dishes and roasted meats.
Giesen Pinot Gris
Available by the dozen
The thrill of a new vintage is what keeps the Giesen team going. It's all about nurturing the vines to yield parcels of the most vibrant fruit. While Giesen retain a comprehensive host of good vineyards throughout the greater viticultural precincts of Aotearoa, it is the aim of the winemakers to ensure that nothing but the finest Pinot Gris grapes are considered for inclusion. A stylish wine with excellent varietal definition and distinctive regionality, as hints of lychee and lemongrass enhance a captivating palate of ripe stonefruit, floral citrus and honeyed, nutty complexity.

The distinctive pungency and zesty qualities of completely ripe Pinot Gris have captured the heart of Giesen. It is the light, refreshing fruit driven taste and engaging complexity of the finished Pinot Gris wine that inspires the team. Giesen work intensively in the vineyard to identify the harvest window for each site, that one or two days when fruit flavours are peaking. All sites must be closely monitored to determine the ideal time for harvest, based upon a criteria of flavour development and acid decrease as the grapes continue to ripen. Giesen aim for consistency of character and quality from vintage to vintage, as low yielding vines and slow ripening climes are what make the wines so special.
 
Light straw colour. A bouquet of lemon and jonagold apple, bosc pear and white florals with a pinch of baking spice, nougat and pinenut. An effusive palate of citrus and kiwifruits, butternut and creamy biscuit characters. A delicate acid finish with hints of mineral and lingering tropical fruit. Excellent as an aperitif or accompaniement to Al Fresco.
Giesen Ridge Block Pinot Noir
Marlborough
Available in cases of 6
Giesen own and operate many of New Zealand's eldest and noblest vineyards, having accumulated an inventory of the finest viticulture since establishment in 1981. A single block of vine at Wairau, defined by a mesoclime and terroir uncannily similar to the great Crus des Cotes du Rhone, was replanted to Pinot Noir, with a view to creating small batches of the most superior vintages. Managed to fully certified organic husbandry, the precious Ridge Block yields the most intense Pinot Noir, crafted to minimalist old world techniques, articulate of a very special site.

Clones 115, 777 and Abel, are planted to a medley of small to medium fractured stones, suspended in free draining silt and clay loams, regularly shoot thinned to optimise balanced growth, fruit thinned to optimise concentrated flavours and cropped at a modest kilogram per vine, hand picked to a schedule aimed at bringing fruit to the wineworks in perfect condition. Parcels are treated to a week of cold soak and three or four weeks wild indigenous yeast ferment on skins, a portion is included as whole bunches. Upon completion, batches are passed through an old fashioned basket press into an extravagantly high proportion of new hogsheads and barriques, for malolactic and a year's maturation.
 
Scarlet red with darker robes. Dark currant fruit notes to start, brambles and maraschino, caraway and cummin, anise and spice. A lovely palate, layered with morello, red apples and black cherry flavours, sassafras and root beer characters, its succulence, piquant stalky tannins and weight of fruit showing superb integration.
Giesen Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough

Low yielding vines grown to a cool climate is what makes Giesen's wines so unique. Complex fruit aromas make them enjoyable whilst young, refreshing acidity gives the wines backbone for long aging in the bottle. Giesen aims for consistency of character and quality from vintage to vintage. Following harvest and pressing, the juices are processed under anaerobic conditions and coolly vinified in fermenters to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit inherent to Sauvignon Blanc, ensnaring the vibrant expressions of the vineyard and fruit. After inoculation with special yeasts and a temperature controlled fermentation, Giesen is stabilised and assembled into the finished wine, filtered and fined.
 
Pale yellow colour with green hues. The aroma is fresh and vibrant with a base of rich tropical fruit, dominated especially when young, by limes and lemongrass as well as fresh herbal notes. A lovely weight of fruit on the mid palate with flavours reminiscent of gooseberry and citrus, surrounded by a juicy, pure acidity giving the wine it's zesty exuberance. Charmingly laden with classic nettle flavours, a crisp, dry finish.

When the Giesen brothers, Theo, Alex and Marcel, planted their first grape vines on bare land at Burnham, near Christchurch, there were those who questioned the practicality of their venture

After all, theirs was the southern-most vineyard in the world at that time and Canterbury was not then known as a wine-producing region. This was 1981 and the Giesens were, quite literally, breaking new ground for the fledgling New Zealand wine industry. Ignoring the scornful words of those who doubted Burnham's suitability for wine production, the brothers tended their plantings of Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer and were rewarded in 1984 with their first vintage.

Giesen

The Giesens further emphasised their foresight by supplementing the vintage with Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Marlborough, a region which would become one of the finest producers in the world. The path they would travel would not always be smooth but their perseverance and the belief in what they were doing was to reward the brothers handsomely. In 1988, Giesen Wines gained its first export order, sending Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc to Margaret Harvey in the United Kingdom.

As it became increasingly obvious that Marlborough would evolve into one of the premium grape-growing regions of New Zealand, the Giesens widened their vineyard interests, purchasing the original Dillon's Point property in 1993. A year later, they had broken into the highly competitive Australian market, appointing Negociants Australia as their exclusive distributors. As the reputation of their wines spread, greater overseas interest in their label flourished, and in 1997, Giesen Wines were represented in the United States for the first time. Two years on, Giesen was in expansion mode, purchasing four separate vineyard blocks in Marlborough and building a new winery in Vernon St, Blenheim.

In 1999, sales of Giesen Wines in Australia topped 3000 cases per annum. A year later, total case sales had soared to 23,000, and increasing volumes were heading to the United States, encouraging Giesen Wines to appoint Dreyfus Ashby and Co as its exclusive distributor there. Success bred even more success when in 2001, Giesens' Marlborough operation was broadened with the development of a 300-acre vineyard at Dillon's Point, Blenheim, sales had doubled to more than 50,000 cases.

As its property portfolio expanded, so too did production, until in 2004, sales exceeded 100,000 cases per annum for the first time. With the growing demand for its wines, particularly in the Australian market, the company moved to larger premises and invested in a bottling and packaging facility at Christchurch, whilst expanding its winery and tank capacity in Blenheim.

Low yielding vines grown to a cool climate is what makes Giesen's wines so unique. Complex fruit aromas make them enjoyable whilst young, refreshing acidity gives the wines backbone for long aging in the bottle. Giesen produces a range of estate wines which aim for consistency of character and quality from vintage to vintage. This range includes a luscious, intensely flavoured Riesling, a vibrant, refreshing Sauvignon Blanc, a complex yet elegant Chardonnay and a succulent, fruit driven Pinot Noir. Most vintages produce parcels of fruit or batches of wine of superior quality. These are bottled under a Reserve or Single Vineyard selection label. This range also includes a Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The style may vary from one vintage to the next as determined by the season, however they will all display individuality and quality.
