    The Clayvin Vineyard in Marlborough was established in 1993 and quite frankly can boast producing some of the best Pinot Noir and Syrah in Aotearoa. Giesen’s Single Vineyard Syrah from the Clayvin vineyard sits among NZ’s elite Syrah – typically selling in $60-65 price bracket.

    Golds, Golds and more Golds. They don’t really need to enter this prestigious wine into competitions, but they do anyway. And it comes up trumps time and time again! This 2019 release has basically just backed up what we said before, taking out a Platinum award at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London 2021!

    Winning Platinum at the DWWA is no easy road that’s for sure. After joining over 18,000 other wines in the Decanter World Wine Awards wines are awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze –  the rest are shown the door! Then the best of the best go toe-to-toe to determine the Platinum award winners.

    Only 179 out of over 18,000 entries made Platinum – that’s less than 1%!

    The judges in London said “ The gorgeous, complex palate consists of perfectly weighted blackcurrant notes, structured tannins and an umami richness coming through on the very long finish.”

    Enjoy and savour it now, but it’ll be good to be kept tucked away in the cellar up until around 2030.
