Theo, Alex and Marcel are the brothers at Giesen. They’ve got good wine in their blood. And good food. And beer too actually. That’s because their granddad August (aw-goost) was a sommelier and their great granddad Leonard Kaiser was a brewer!
Originally from Germany the Giesen brothers ended up in Marlborough in the early 80s while on their round-the-world travels. They fell in love with the place and decided to lay down roots. They purchased some land and planted a vineyard just outside of Christchurch. A few years later released their first ever wine – the 1984 Giesen Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc! Three decades on they’re one of Marlborough’s kingpin producers.
Their latest “Uncharted” series is the three Giesen brothers’ tribute to the area they call home, Marlborough. This is the second ever release from the 2021 vintage of the Giesen Uncharted Sauvignon Blanc and it’s certainly been quite the hit!
This scoring a seriously impressive 92/100 with Master of Wine Bob Campbell as well as Top Ranking award AND a Top Value Award!
Bob said “Dry but not austere wine with a mouth-tingling finish. Texturally impressive.”
Drink now to 2026 and if you’re looking for the perfect food match the Giesen guys and girls reckon this is perfect with smoked wild trout salad with new season potatoes, cherry tomatoes and peas.
Damn, you're looking young for your age!
