Vera Czerny rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Giesen Wines, established in 1981, is a family affair. Family owns 75 acres in Marlborough and about 360 acres are in production. Three brothers Theo, Alex and Marcel run the winery that is now almost entirely export business.

Although the Sauvignon Blanc is the main grape in New Zealand, Giesen also produces excellent Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir. 2010 Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from approximately 40 separate sites. As the different soils allows wine to ripen at different times, blending sites provides a considerable flavor profile.

Strong aroma of green grapefruit, lemon and green herbs. On the palate this is a zesty, crisp wine with hints of lime, citrus, sweet green gooseberries, and peppers. Ripe fruit translated into grapefruit flavors feels almost sweet, but the acidity is well balanced.

This is a great summer wine, a world class Marlborough's Sauvignon Blanc at its best.
