Giesen Estate Riesling Organic (12 Bottles) Marlborough, New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



The Giesen Estate Riesling is New Zealand’s most popular Riesling and consistently wins awards each vintage year.

A vivacious Riesling with succulent citrus blossom, alluring lime and sweet mandarin with a delightfully crisp, refreshing off-dry finish.

This Riesling brings together outstanding fruit from two of New Zealand’s preeminent Riesling areas – Marlborough & Waipara.

The fruit selected from Marlborough adds a textural element, richness, citrus flavours and ageability to the wine. Waipara gives us our fabulous floral aromatics.

There is a reason this is New Zealand’s favourite Riesling – try it for yourself.

This Riesling is lighter in alcohol at 10% alc/vol. We use a selection of different yeasts to amplify the regional characteristics of the Marlborough portion of the blend.

Our winemakers taste each parcel daily and stop the ferment when the wine is in balance and the aromas of spice & exotic tropical notes are present.

Stopping the ferment early also leaves behind some natural sugar hence the beautiful off-dry component of the wine.

The Riesling is kept on light lees until bottling.



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.
