This April's winery of the month is a new-ish brand with a long history. When we say 'new', we are talking in the global sense. The winery is Giesen and it was founded four decades ago by three brothers who were relatively new immigrants to New Zealand from their homeland in Germany. So it is no surprise to find that Riesling plays a large role in their success because Germany is the world's headquarters to the Riesling grape, a country in which it is the most planted variety. The grandfather to the Giesen brothers, Auguste Giesen, worked as a sommelier in the Mosel, inadvertently inspiring his grandsons to take their careers in a similar direction.
This month we have selected four Rieslings, three Pinot Noirs, two Syrahs and two Chardonnays to taste with and sell to customers. Giesen is one of New Zealand's great family wineries and it is a great privilege to have this company as our winery of the month for April. The Giesen Group is also so inventive that it has diversified. One of the best things about the Giesen Group is that there are wines for every budget and for every taste.
Wines of the month
Giesen Estate is an expansive producer with a wide range of vineyard sites from the elevated slopes of the great Clayvin organically certified vineyard in Marlborough to flat land such as the Ridge Block and other areas on the vast Wairau Plains. Speaking of Clayvin and Ridge Block, both sites are home to a smidgeon of Syrah, something of a rarity in Marlborough but which not only survives but thrives on these sites and as the wines speak for themselves, please pop in and ask to taste the Giesen wines we have open under Coravin, if you are serious about buying.
