96 Points - Bob Campbell 

Intensely flavoured wine with strong plum, raspberry and smoky oak characters. Long and linear Pinot Noir with a seamless texture. Although the wine is accessible now it has the density, power and structure to develop very well in bottle.

Giesen Wines, Marlborough, New Zealand

Region

New Zealand is split between the North Island and South Island and the Marlborough region is situated in the North of the South Island. The climate here is the hottest in the country meaning that this wine producing region is expanding quickly. Of course, Sauvignon Blanc does well here and is increasingly becoming more and more popular due to its naturally herbaceous character and lean and refreshing style much loved by Western wine drinkers. Wineries Greywacke and Dog Point both have delicious Sauvignon Blanc wines with typical Marlborough characteristics. Red wines, mainly Pinot Noir also grow well in this region and an excellent example of a Pinot Noir from this area is the Akitu Pinot Noir which comes highly recommended from Vinorium staff!
