One of the earliest viticultural inhabitants of Marlborough, the Giesen Brothers offer a fantastic portfolio - including a Pinot Noir from the pedigreed Clayvin Vineyard. When it comes to value in New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, however, it's hard to beat Giesen's entry-level. Tart, clean, and mineral - it tastes of sea water-splashed bell peppers, mixed with cold grapefruit slices and cilantro.

Nearly clear in the glass and very faint scents of Meyer lemon on the nose. Strong notes of straw, fresh cut grass, and honeysuckle on the palate. A bit more nuanced and lean than most other ~$10 NZ Sauv Blanc's. Less juicy and more rustic. A nice surprise, if a bit single note. Interesting enough for a more experienced crowd, but easy drinking for everyone else. A great book club choice.

Flavorful but not too tart like some SB’s can be.

Citrus and guava notes with a nice tart bite of acidity.
