Description

The Clayvin vineyard in Marlborough is synonymous with prestige NZ Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, so when Giesen started adding a portion of Clayvin fruit in their Brothers Chardonnay, it was transformed from good quality into a serious example of premium Chardonnay minus the high price tag. Even in a vintage best described by winemakers as 'challenging', the superb fruit quality shines through, wonderfully complemented by the abundance of French oak (25% new) and German 1000L Fuder barrels in its flavours and texture.

Smells

Blanched almond, brioche and hazelnut, with concentrated rockmelon and apricot notes.

Tastes

The quality fruit and oak are integrated so well together here, with grapefruit and melon characters balanced against some toastiness and nuttiness, with a beautifully creamy texture. A top notch wine that punches well above its price!
