Description

The Clayvin vineyard in Marlborough is synonymous with prestige NZ Chardonnay & Pinot Noir, so when Giesen started adding a portion of Clayvin fruit to their Brothers Chardonnay, it was transformed from good quality into a serious example of premium Chardonnay minus the high price tag. The 2019 vintage is excellent – the superb fruit quality shines through, wonderfully complemented by the abundance of French oak (25% new) and textural enhancement greatly increased through ageing in German 1000L Fuder barrels... where the surface to oak ratio is greatly diminished. A very complex and balanced Chardonnay transcending its modest price... a smart purchase for the canny wine buyer.

Smells
Seductive aromas of blanched almond, brioche, hazelnut, with concentrated rock melon, pineapple and citrus.

Tastes
The concentrated pure fruit and oak are beautifully integrated, with pineapple and melon flavours balanced against fine oaky toastiness and nuttiness, all delivered in an alluring creamy texture. The delicious and lengthy finish is lifted by very fine citrus infused acidity. Clearly a premium experience delivering miles above its price. Drink now with rich seafood, roast pork or chicken. Will cellar nicely through 2024-2027.
