We’ve got Christmas wrapped up for you!

Everyone loves to slip into something new for Christmas, this year we’ve extended that to Giesen’s most loved and awarded Estate Wines. Here in New Zealand and Australia, our summer makeover is just about appearances and we promise that inside you will find the same award-winning Marlborough wine you enjoy and love.

Christmas Wine Gift ideas

For summer 2019/2020 Giesen Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Giesen Estate Pinot Gris and Giesen Estate Riesling are each slipping into a new limited release sleeve with a Kiwi twist. Each of these wines – known and loved by New Zealanders will be sporting a sleeve designed to celebrate summer.

You’ll be rapt – Christmas Sleeves are on your favourite Giesen Estate Wines. Introducing a great wine turns any moment into a celebration, making our limited release sleeves perfect for every summer entertaining opportunity.

We have become known the world over for our Giesen Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with good reason. Its classic Marlborough, aromatically expressive and generously flavoured with scrumptious tropical fruit and a lingering crispness.

Giesen Estate Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019 features a design inspired by native New Zealand ferns and pohutukawa flowers. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect addition to every holiday occasion. Make sure you enjoy a glass with your friends and family, they will thank you!

Summer Wines

Our iconic Riesling meets the iconic Kiwi Christmas tree, the pohutukawa. The jewel in Giesen’s Riesling crown, Estate Riesling is a favourite with wine lovers throughout the country – making it New Zealand’s number one selling Riesling.  Its icon status is thanks to its flavour. Giesen Estate Riesling has succulent citrus blossom, alluring lime and sweet mandarin with a delightfully crisp, refreshing off-dry finish.

Giesen Estate Riesling 2019 features a stunning limited release design inspired by the pohutukawa. This iconic Kiwi Christmas tree, often features on greeting cards and in poems and songs, has become an important symbol for New Zealanders so great it would partner our iconic Riesling.

Giesen Estate Riesling is New Zealand’s most popular Riesling, consistently winning awards every year. This is a limited release holiday edition of our iconic Riesling and we wouldn’t want you or your loved ones to miss out, so grab it while you can!
Giesen Estate Pinot Gris 2018 entices with fresh pear, peach and nuances of almond meal. Rich fruit with a touch of creaminess and subtle spice lead into a lively, off-dry finish. Not surprisingly this delightful blend of creaminess and subtle spice is the perfect wine to showcase that New Zealand summer garden favourite, the Christmas lily.

Lilies are one of the most beautiful flowers bringing beauty and fragrance to summer just like our fragrant Giesen Estate Pinot Gris.

Treat yourself or if you’re feeling generous enjoy Giesen Estate Pinot Gris 2018 with family and friends.
