NZ WINERY OF THE YEAR 2018! MULTIPLE AWARDS!
The Giesen brothers, Theo, Alex & Marcel, have been making great varietal table wines in the South Island since the 1980's. Now one of the oldest, and most successful New Zealand wineries, Giesen have mastered the craft of making extremely popular styles loved across the globe.
Giesen Estate Riesling has become a New Zealand legend, highly awarded and the country’s number one seller. It’s not surprising given its striking notes of lime and mandarin and its delicious, succulent juicy sweetness finished with a clean acid backbone. Winemaker, Nikolai St George, is a four-time winner of New Zealand Winemaker of the Year. He's pretty darn good at making a great Riesling!
Enjoy this wine on its own, with some good friends & family, and also try with Vietnamese chicken salad, with fresh mint, coriander and a touch of fresh chilli. Simply divine!
