WINERY WEBSITE - August Giesen (pronounced Aw-goost), born 1888, was a sommelier, restauranteur, hotelier, and a bit of a local legend in his native Germany. To Giesen Wines founders Theo, Alex, and Marcel, he was simply ‘Opa’. This elegant barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc displays all of the boundary-pushing characteristics of its namesake. Hand-picked and wild fermented with integrated oak, this complex and multi-dimensional wine is a fitting tribute to a legend. Fruit from two iconic Giesen vineyards make up The August Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018 – our Matthews Lane and Dillons Point vineyards. Fruit from our Matthews Lane site adds rich ripe tropical notes, steely, wet pebble aromas and purity. Our organically-certified Dillons Point adds herbal notes, richness and structure. Wild yeasts add extra texture and build depth and length. With a tropical nose featuring passionfruit, guava and lime leaves, this is a multi-dimensional wine layered with toasty almonds, fresh brioche and incredible flinty notes. A carefully selected mix of seasoned German & French oak provides complexity and elegance.
