Giesen Clayvin Pinot Noir Organic (6 Bottles) Marlborough, New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



From world renowned Clayvin Vineyard in the Southern Valleys, a certified organic Pinot Noir with excellent intensity and a structured foundation.

The journey of each Single Vineyard wine starts in a Marlborough vineyard selected for its unique terroir and climate. They are then nurtured with meticulous hands-on viticulture to ensure fruit produces highly concentrated flavour. Our winemaking expertise then allows these wines to speak for themselves, their purity becoming a showcase of the land.

Established in 1993, Clayvin Vineyard was Marlborough’s first significant hillside vineyard. North facing, the vineyard planting is high density. This density creates natural competition among the vines, reducing vigour, promoting root structure and intensity of flavour. It also means that the vineyard only produces ‘one bottle of Clayvin Pinot Noir per vine’.

This Single Vineyard Clayvin Pinot Noir is earthy, with wild strawberry and red cherry. It’s restrained with good intensity and a structured foundation, finishing with great length.

World renowned vineyard ‘Clayvin’ has historically set the standard for premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production from Marlborough.

There is no wine anywhere in the world that tastes like the wine of Marlborough. Balance, purity and intense flavour set around impressive aroma, distinctive fruit and appealing balanced acidity is unrivalled.

Giesen Wines own 13 vineyards, of which 11% are certified organic with BioGro New Zealand. They have been strategically acquired throughout the highly sought after Wairau Valley and maintain strong long-term relationships with some of the Valley’s best growers. This gives us a range of grape growing conditions which ensures we consistently have the finest grapes from the region each vintage.

Giesen wines have been peeling away the layers and exploring the purity of organic flavour. Three years in the making, the Giesen Brothers have produced their first organic alternative to the traditional Marlborough sauvignon blanc. The palate has delicious fruit weight and zesty flavours and gives a taste of what nature intended, one of which nature has grown.
