91pointsGiesen 2014 Single Vineyard Selection Matthews Lane The Fuder Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Over one million cuttings from the Matthews Lane Vineyard have been supplied to nurseries—and therefore wineries—around Marlborough, so in theory, there's a small piece of it in many of the wines from the region. It's special, then, to taste Giesen's single-vineyard version, aged in 1000 liter German fuders. Trademark regional characters of jalepeño, green beans and grass marry with lemon balm, pressed yellow flowers and butter, all ensconced in an oily texture, slippery acidity and a grassy finish.
