A New Release from Giesen
Everyone loves a Marlborough Savvy, right? What about a delicious, new version with a playful twist?
Marlborough Savvy is such a crowd favourite adding a daring element of excitement can only make it better! That’s exactly what our winemakers have done and we’re pretty chuffed with the result – Blush Sauvignon.
We’ve Blushed it.
We’ve taken our award-winning Marlborough Sauvignon and made it ‘Blush’ by adding a splash of fragrant Hawke’s Bay Merlot. What we have created in this unique wine, is a delicious, fun twist on Savvy which is perfect when enjoyed over summer.
As soon as the lid is lifted on this elegant bottle and it’s gently splashed into a glass, aromas of passionfruit and blueberry entice the senses. Its tantalising palate is joyous with a sweet fruit core of gooseberry and grapefruit which finishes refreshingly crisp and dry.
Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a Twist.
Since Giesen began making wine in 1984 we have made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and led the world in its love of the wine’s unique, delicious flavour. We make more than 10 different styles of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, so it’s no surprise that we have created this first-of-a-kind blend of Savvy with a delicious twist! To create Blush Sauvignon the winemaking team started with Giesen Estate’s much-loved and awarded Sauvignon Blanc. They carefully selected fruit from two of Marlborough’s most highly regarded Sauvignon Blanc growing areas; the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Fruit from Wairau Valley provides bright, tropical flavours, while Awatere fruit gives hints of herbs, richness, depth and a long dry finish. Following a gentle pressing, the juice was given yeast to prompt fermentation which was stopped when the wine achieved the perfect flavour – a balance of natural sweetness and classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc character. Finally, winemakers added the exceptional element – a splash of Hawke’s Bay Merlot which gives this wine a fun and a fragrant Blush glow.
The joyous sweet fruit core and refreshingly crisp, dry finish ensures Blush Sauvignon is the perfect match for BBQs or antipasto platters. For those wanting a sundowner to accompany the pink Blush of sunset, the flavours of this Savvy tastes delicious on its own as an aperitif. A playful, versatile addition to every gathering – Blush Sauvignon adds a touch of style to any occasion! Next time you’re catching up with a group of girlfriends make sure to invite Blush Sauvignon, she’ll arrive dressed in pink!
