Marlborough, in NZ, is famous for the Sauvignon Blanc wines it exports all over the world. The combination of cool climate with high sunshine produces wines with a signature fresh, herbaceous character.
Giesen Estate Marlborough Sauv Blanc 2015 is no exception. A typical Marlborough Sauv Blanc, it excites the nose and the palate at the same time. The bouquet is fresh with aromas of kaffir lime leaf, grapefruit, grass and herbal notes while the palate is a tropical mix of gooseberry and citrus. This is a medium bodied wine with a lingering zesty finish. You can read the full tasting notes here. Serve this refreshing number with fresh shellfish such as mussels or clams, steamed in a tomato, garlic and herb broth.
The 2013 & 2014 vintages picked up bronze medals at the 2015 Decanter Awards and the 2012 vintage was awarded 89 points by Huon Hooke. You can read what he says about the wine here. This savvy is recognised by many Kiwis as a great, affordable wine.
This offer gets 3 stars. We ran a similar offer in March this year so we’ve downgraded this offer by half a star because it has been on offer before. However, this offer presents good value for money. At just $9.50, this is a great deal. You can taste one of the region’s outstanding exports and save yourself some loose change. In terms of quality and value for money, this wine is unchallenged by its similarly priced peers.
You need to buy any 6 bottles to get this outstanding price, so why not peruse our other offers and put yourself together a 6 mixed case, or buy 6 of the same and enjoy while the weather is warming up.
Don’t miss out on sampling a wonderful representation of why Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs have been cast onto the world stage.
