A spectacular Chardonnay from a seriously underrated region for the grape - Marlborough. Giesen's foray into top-end single vineyard work shines here with this world beating example from the legendary Clayvin vineyard. Densely packed with citric and stone fruit and mealy, minerally character, this wine has all the generosity and underlying power we expect of top rung Chardonnay. And what marks it as a Marlborough wine is a brightness of aromatics and acidity that is so welcome for both enjoying young, and for a delicious development over time.
An elegant wine showing soft stone fruit aromas and flavours, ethereal and subtle. Wonderful developing ripe, sweet, citrus and nutty notes, with an amazingly long finish.
