Giesen 'Ridge Block' Pinot Noir 2013

Giesen 'Ridge Block' Pinot Noir 2013 World's Best Pinot Noir - 2016 International Wine & Spirits Competition


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

World’s Best Pinot Noir at the 2016 International Wine & Spirits Competition, UK.
An extremely balanced wine combining fine tannins with brooding summer compote fruit and bright acidity. The aromatics are a lovely combination of ripe blueberry and cranberry fruit. A kiss of smoky oak adds spice and a creamy texture to the mid palate. Elegant and long finish.
90+ pts The Wine Advocate
Giesen's 2013 Single Vineyard Selection Ridge Block Pinot Noir has a pale ruby-purple color and nose of crushed red currants and black raspberries with violets, cinnamon and cloves hints. Light to medium-bodied and elegantly fruited on the palate, it has lovely perfume matched by satiny texture and just enough acidity, finishing with plenty of finesse.



Winemaker Notes

Dark currant fruit notes to start, bramble, anise and spice on the nose. Lovely succulence and fruit weight showing superb integration. The Giesen Single Vineyard Series, a limited edition collection of wines, crafted to give an honest reflection of the vineyard. These sites are located throughout the Wairau Valley and aim to showcase Marlborough's unique sub regions. Combining meticulous viticulture practices aimed to produce the finest, highly concentrated flavors. The winemakers ensure these wines speak for themselves; wild fermentation, rested in highest quality German & French oak, a perfect example of our single vineyard philosophy producing wines of the land.
