Marlborough freshness with peach, citrus and a tropical fruit platter, plenty of Marlborough herbal attributes as well. On the palate - just dry with punchy acidity that leads to the flavours of lemon skin and peach, hints of tropical fruit and white floral notes. Balanced, well made and a very enjoyable finish.
Giesen The Brothers Marlborough Chardonnay 2013 13.5%
Gentle bouquet with soft yet obvious waves of peach and vanilla with hints of honey suckle and mild toasty oak features. The palate reflects the nose well with a soft and creamy texture, medium+ acidity and medium+ finish. Balanced, well made and a wine to please many a Chardonnay fan.
Giesen Vineyard selection Marlborough PInot Noir 2013 14.5%
Varietal, clean fresh and crisp aromas of Pinot Noir with sweet cherry, red apple skin and raspberry notes; very mild oak keeping the fruit forward attributes leading the nose. On the palate a dry wine that emphasises the fruit signature of Pinot Noir with lots of light red fruit flavors, mild yet fine tannins and a little more oak now showing adding to the finish. Light bodied, dry finish, balanced and well made.
