A classy example of Kiwi Gris - opulently aromatic and with some sweetness. This balance is common but what sets this apart is complexity and quality - such a wide range of fruits that are powerfully defined, concentrated and harmonised and held up by vibrant acidity in perfect balance. Also depth and background: with heaps up front there's also heaps to uncover, with mineral and spicy layers from the vineyard and from 30% indigenous fermentation in old oak. Even haters of Kiwi Pinot Gris will admit how good it is.

Overview

Grape

Pinot Gris

Its Origins

Amisfield was established in 1988, a Central Otago based specialist producer of pinot noir and aromatic white wines created from fruit grown on the estate vineyard beneath the Pisa Mountain range in the Cromwell Basin. This privately owned company's 200ha property, once a prominent high country merino station, is one of the largest single vineyard estates in the Central Otago region. Over 80ha is currently planted with the majority of the vines being over ten years old. A state-of-the-art purpose built winery is the focal point of the vineyard and produces 20,000 -30,000 cases of wine annually. Pinot Noir accounts for over 60% of the production with the balance made up of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling.
