Giesen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012 | Giesen | Wine of New
Purity of aroma typifies Giesen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012 with notes of lemon and lime zest, jasmine, ginger and ‘petrichor’, which means the aroma of rain on dry earth. The palate has a succulent sweetness and intensity, reminiscent of lemon curd combined with the vibrant flavours of mandarin. Lovely and dry, the mineral acidity provides a structural backbone and length to the palate.
What I have to say about Geisen Estate Marlborough Riesling 2012:
Fruity, sweet but not annoyingly so. THIS is a fun wine and something that should be shared with a group of friends as we watch the sunset from my porch on a summer evening in Toronto. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
What critics and the Pelhma Estate are saying about 2011 Pinot Grigio:
“Could not be nicer” – 2012 Edition of Billy’s Best Bottles
“A crowd pleaser if ever there was one. This is the first crack at the popular Italian varietal for the Speck brothers – and a well done one at that. A round, fruity nose full of ripe orchard and citrus fruit and follows through on the palate with ripe white peach, lemon meringue, and candied grapefruit, with sweet raw almond on the finish.”
– Courtney Henderson, Tonic Magazine, November 2011
4 stars – Tony Aspler

What I have to say about 2011 Pinot Grigio:
“Anything that gives me rotgut after little more than a small glass and a half is being far better marketed than it’s taste deserves.”
