Get to know New Zealand’s most-awarded riesling and the tasty food match you have to try
Not only was Giesen Estate Riesling voted New Zealand’s top riesling in Liquorland’s recent Picked By You awards, it’s also New Zealand’s no.1 selling riesling AND over the last four vintage years it has won three trophies and a massive 30 gold medals, including being named 'New Zealand Riesling Winery' of the Year at the prestigious New York Wine Competition 2016.
Giesen Estate Riesling was created by the Giesen brothers with the belief that great wines are the ones we remember from fun experiences with family and friends.
Made to be generous, smooth, relaxing and most of all taste great, this riesling is perfect for social gatherings but is equally enjoyable when sipped on its own, allowing you to bask in its succulent citrus and orange blossom flavours.
Chief Winemaker Nikolai St George (pictured below, left) describes the wine as a medium-sweet style, and recommends serving it with fresh mussels or clams, steamed in a simple tomato, garlic and fresh herb broth (below, right).
