Giesen 2016 The Brothers Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

From the slightly cooler climes of the Awatere Valley, this wine is a lovely example of both regionality and an increasing penchant for Sauvignon Blancs with added texture and complexity. Aromas of grapefruit, herbal spice and roasted green peppers are framed by a distinct smoky, flinty quality which continues through to the palate. Medium-bodied, this may be slippery in texture but it's also taut and focused in a grapefruit tang and a salty, if slightly oaky finish. Christina Pickard
