Giesen Wines are a long established label on the New Zealand scene. But as the family have gained expertise and expanded into personal projects - such as Marcel Giesen’s little known but lauded boutique Waipara estate, Bell Hill - the Giesen label too has shifted to capture their deep expertise in terroir and technique by adding new high-investment, single vineyard offerings such as those from the "revered" Clayvin vineyard, made famous by Fromm wines. The three German brother’s Alex, Theo and Marcel came to New Zealand to establish their first Riesling vineyards in Canterbury. In a then-small market, the Geisen brand grew with the times to take a position as one of New Zealand’s leading producers, and still enjoys a significant local and international distribution for various levels of high quality wine in many varieties and styles. Their new mid and upper level offerings are gaining significant recognition: wines like the Clayvin Pinot Noir is not only from great terroir but beautifully styled, placing it second to none among New Zealand’s premium examples of the grape.
What The Critics Say
5 Stars Cuisine Magazine
"Marlborough’s pinot stocks continue to rise, thanks to carefully crafted wines like this. A prelude of beguiling floral scents is followed by a spicy, focused tour de force of bright fruit. The tannins are soft and well integrated, the finish lengthy. Try it alongside an anchovy and black olive pizza."

"Very attractive and flavoursome, fruit-driven pinot noir with succulent plum, cherry and raspberry flavours supported by a seasoning of spicy oak. Accessible now, although the wine should develop even more complexity with bottle-age 13/7/2016" Drink 2016 - 2020
