Marcel said the organic nature of Clayvin fitted with the growing focus that Giesen Wines are placing on their organic plantings, with 15% of vineyards now converted or in transition.
“We think the future of organic wine is significant. The grapes produced on the organic vineyards have a wonderfully intense flavour that is ideally suited to our ultra premium wines. But just because a wine is organic doesn’t mean we would automatically release it. It has to stand up on its own merit and be of equal quality if not better than the rest of our wines.”
The recently released Marlborough Organic Sauvignon Blanc 2012 is already selling strongly.
