Overview

Grape

Sauvignon Blanc

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.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Fresh, grassy sauvignon blanc with capsicum, gooseberry, wet stone mineral and crushed herb flavours. Fruity acidity ensures a dry and lengthy finish. Appealing purity. Good food wine (great with oysters) 9/11/2016." Drink from 2016

4 Stars Michael Cooper

"The 2016 vintage (4*), estate-grown at Lowburn, was mostly handled in tanks, but a small portion of the blend was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old French oak barriques. Aromatic and tangy, it is bone-dry, with good intensity of tropical-fruit and herbaceous flavours, a touch of complexity, and very good balance, vigour and depth."
