Giesen single vineyard first release wins recognition

Giesen single vineyard first release wins international recognition


20 May 2014 – Giesen Wines has won international plaudits with its first release of premium single vineyard wines from Marlborough.

Three different single vineyard selections have won gold at two prestigious UK competitions. The Brookby Rd Pinor Noir 2012 and Clayvin Pinot Noir 2012 were awarded gold in the coveted Decanter competition while Giesen The Fuder Clayvin Chardonnay 2012 captured gold at the International Wine Challenge (IWC).

Theo Giesen, of Giesen Wines, says this is the first time its wines have been awarded gold at either of the UK competitions.

In another recent international success, the powerhouse of the company’s portfolio, Giesen Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2013, has captured gold at the 2014 Concours Mondial Du Sauvignon in Brussels.

“The judges are rigorous in their selection so that consumers are assured that the Conours Mondial seal is a reliable measure of quality.

“We’re delighted with these successes because they underscore our ability to produce a diverse portfolio from super premium wines through to more moderately priced styles. Our single vineyard styles are being incredibly well received and the Clayvin vineyard, over which we have a long term lease, is internationally renowned.

“Our wines cover the spectrum from our very popular Estate Sauvignon Blanc, which is exported to 30 countries, through to our high end single vineyard wines which have only recently become available in markets such as the UK.”

More than 80% of all New Zealand’s wine exports to the UK are Sauvignon Blanc.
