Giesen Merlot 2015 (6 x 750mL) Hawkes Bay New Zealand


Fruit harvested from four vineyards, picked at optimum ripeness. Short pre-ferment maceration for colour and flavour extraction followed by a five to seven day ferment period. The wine was gently pressed offf the skins 2 days after ferment was complete, then inoculated for Malolactic Fermentation. The wine was rested on oak to add broadness and body to the wine. Minimal finings were used, before a gentle filtration.

Vintage Conditions

Hawke’s Bay experienced an excellent flowering season, with only moderate frost risk to marginal vineyards. The following summer was hot and dry. Three rain events just before harvest affected the harvest minimally, as they were followed by periods of high wind to dry the conditions out. The fruit showed opulence and balance when it was picked at optimum ripeness.
