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
Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier
"Generous, lush and fruity bouquet with aromas of fresh pear and apple, some quince and peach then a layer of silty mineral earthy qualities and a light white spice. On the palate - just dry with some light sweetness, a core of ripe fruit and medium+ acidity adding crunch and freshness. This wine will reward from now and through 2020 if stored well. Fresh, crisp, balanced and well made." Drink 2016 - 2020
Bob Campbell MW
"Dry chenin blanc with green apple, citrus, lemon and wet stone/mineral character. Fairly crisp and austere wine now but has the potential to age well." Drink 2016 - 2026
"Estate-grown at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, the 2016 vintage was hand-harvested and partly barrel-fermented. A youthful, tightly structured wine with obvious potential, it is full-bodied, lemony, appley and slightly spicy, with a sliver of sweetness (5.7 grams/litre of residual sugar) and mouth-watering acidity. Best drinking 2019+."
