Blush Sauvignon

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a Twist.

Since Giesen began making wine in 1984 we have made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and led the world in its love of the wine’s unique, delicious flavour. We make more than 10 different styles of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, so it’s no surprise that we have created this first-of-a-kind blend of Savvy with a delicious twist! To create Blush Sauvignon the winemaking team started with Giesen Estate’s much-loved and awarded Sauvignon Blanc.

 

They carefully selected fruit from two of Marlborough’s most highly regarded Sauvignon Blanc growing areas; the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Fruit from Wairau Valley provides bright, tropical flavours, while Awatere fruit gives hints of herbs, richness, depth and a long dry finish. Following a gentle pressing, the juice was given yeast to prompt fermentation which was stopped when the wine achieved the perfect flavour – a balance of natural sweetness and classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc character. Finally, winemakers added the exceptional element – a splash of Hawke’s Bay Merlot which gives this wine a fun and a fragrant Blush glow.


Blush Sauvignon

The joyous sweet fruit core and refreshingly crisp, dry finish ensures Blush Sauvignon is the perfect match for BBQs or antipasto platters. For those wanting a sundowner to accompany the pink Blush of sunset, the flavours of this Savvy tastes delicious on its own as an aperitif. A playful, versatile addition to every gathering – Blush Sauvignon adds a touch of style to any occasion! Next time you’re catching up with a group of girlfriends make sure to invite Blush Sauvignon, she’ll arrive dressed in pink!

Fruit for this blush was carefully selected from cool-climate vineyards in New Zealand’s treasured Marlborough and Waipara regions. Our signature Marlborough Riesling offers luxurious richness and bright citrus flavours that are highlighted by fabulous floral aromas from the Waipara fruit. A dash of Marlborough-grown Syrah gives this wine a touch of sweet berry flavour and its namesake blush.
