Excellent length, building intensity on the backpalate, finish and aftertaste. It is easy to see why this wine outperforms its price and why it attracts so many repeat buyers. It is bursting full of ripe fruit flavours from start to finish, and will stand up to almost any seafood/ pasta/ white meat dish. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc re-wrote the rules on how this variety can taste and Giesen played a major role in introducing it to wine drinkers around the world. People everywhere have fallen for its intense aromas and ripe flavours of gooseberry and passionfruit, while retaining a gentle leafiness and a lovely refreshing acid backbone. 'If you haven't heard of or tasted a Giesen sav blanc, you have been living a very sheltered life. Massive volume savvy from New Zealand that maintains a good quality and value for money year in and year out. It's as you expect New Zealand sauvignon blanc to taste. 88/100' This wine has won many prizes: the San Diego International Wine Competition awarded the 2013 vintage Gold and the 2012 vintage Gold.
