Giesen The Brothers Pinot Noir 2011 wins top trophy

Growing recognition of the calibre of Marlborough Pinot Noir has been highlighted with Giesen The Brothers Pinot Noir 2011 winning top accolades at the 2013 Spiegelau International Wine awards dinner in Auckland on the weekend.

Produced from the sought after Wairau Valley in Marlborough, The Brothers Pinot Noir 2011 won gold and then went on to win the overall trophy for Singapore Airlines Champion Pinot Noir.

Marcel Giesen said Giesen Wines is now focusing considerable attention on Pinot Noir, having planted their first 100% organic Pinot Noir vineyard only three years ago.

“We see a huge future for the varietal from Marlborough and all at the high quality end of the market.

“Global demand and accolades suggest that Marlborough is becoming highly regarded not only for Sauvignon Blanc but also for Pinot Noir - 54% of all New Zealand Pinot Noir comes from the Marlborough region. This win underpins its growing reputation.“

Fruit for The Brothers Pinot Noir 2011 was handpicked from five vineyards in the southern valleys and hills of the Wairau Valley with one parcel from Spring Creek.

About Giesen Wines
The German-born Giesen brothers Theo, Alex and Marcel possess a sense of adventure and determination; in 1981, they made the bold decision to leave their home and travel halfway around the world to make wine in New Zealand. Over the past 31 years, they have established 283 hectares of vineyards in Marlborough’s highly sought after Wairau Valley with one simple aim – make wines that people want to drink. As is the New Zealand way, Giesen is certified in SWNZ (Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand) practice. However, they have taken it a step further with conversion to organic viticulture in two established and one new vineyard.
