Giesen Estate

Hawke's Bay

Merlot

A generous, smooth Merlot from the Hawke's Bay wine region.


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.

Giesen Estate

Great wines are the ones we remember from fun experiences with family and friends, that’s why we created Giesen Estate. Our Estate wines showcase distinctive regional varieties which are generous, smooth, relaxing and most of all taste great.

Winemaking

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.

Reviews

"Bright and delightfully lifted, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, floral and subtle spice notes, leading to a succulent palate displaying supple mouthfeel and juicy acidity. It's upfront and friendly, offering lovely drinking. At its best: now to 2023.
