Giesen 2019 The Brothers Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

Giesen's lees and barrel aged “The Brothers” is back and, likely thanks to the fantastic 2019 vintage, is better than it's been in several years. It opens with a delicate perfume of honeydew melon, green-apple slices, black-currant leaf and honeysuckle. There's a slight burn of sulfur on the palate but overall it's fruit driven and textural, lifted by a lovely crunch of acidity and a welcome layer of complexity amidst the refreshment.
