Giesen Marlborough Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
The brothers Giesen consistently impress with their pinot noir from Marlborough. Sappy, detailed cherry and red berry fruit burst from the glass, along with hints of Asian spice, forest floor and purple flowers. Plenty of presence on the palate, with bright, stony acidity, sexy spice and structure and length to burn. Great drinking.

This Marlborough pinot from the masters of Marlborough sauvignon shows plenty of spiced cherry fruit on the nose, some poached strawberry too - it's a real exercise in showcasing pinot's attractive fruit aromas. The palate has supple mid-weight shape and plenty of flesh, and smooth tannins make this an easy one to like. Drink now - not for the long haul.

Full-on beetroot and rhubarb nose. Excellent varietal characters of strawberries and cherries on the palate with intense spiciness. Good acid balance. Will age well.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
The easy-drinking 2007 vintage is ruby-hued, with a floral bouquet. Vibrantly fruity, it's a middleweight style, fresh, cherryish, spicy and smooth.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
A very fruit-driven style, the 2001 vintage has good colour depth, with fresh, berryish aromas. A youthful wine with fresh acidity, it offers good depth of raspberryish, plummy flavour. It's worth brief cellaring; open mid 2003-04.
