Giesen Estate Merlot Hawke’s Bay Organic (6 Bottles) Marlborough, New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



A Merlot with perfumed plum, spice and delicious notes of mocha, a delectable smooth and supple wine.

Fruit for our Giesen Estate Merlot comes from the Hawke’s Bay wine region on the East Coast of the North Island which is known for producing rich, plummy Merlot.

Our fruit is selected predominantly from vineyards in the Bridge Pa area and gives us ripe fruit flavours, texture and a beautiful deep, dark colour.


Once harvested we make the wine in Hawke’s Bay to ensure we don’t compromise on the quality of the fruit by transporting it down to our winery in Marlborough.

We use warmer ferments to maximise colour and flavour.

The wine sits in French oak for 10 months, a mix of one to five year old barrels, of which 20% are new.



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.
