Description

The Giesen family immigrated to NZ in the 80's and from the word go produced legendary Rieslings from their home vineyards in Burnham, South of Christchurch. Now based in Marlborough, producing a huge array of exciting wines, from many varieties with an emphasis on Single Vineyard wines, such as this Gemstone Riesling. This wine was fermented in three parcels: German granite tanks, 500l old barrels and stainless steel tanks, enhancing complexity, texture and structure.

Smells

enticing lifted aromas of honeysuckle, beeswax, apricot and lemonade fruit. Its perfumed, exotic and alluring where you cannot help putting the glass to your nose, again and again and breathing deeply.

Tastes

a delicately balanced Riesling with a touch of natural sugar as the fermentation was stopped before dryness. Ripe exotic fruits, guava, honey and apricots make for a rich style balanced by seamless acidity. There is a purity of fruit and an intensity, like great Rieslings from the Mosel. And with only 8.5% alcohol, there is no need to resist having another glass alongside your favourite canape or creamy cheese selection. Top Riesling in Cuisine March 2021.
