In stock

Hand-harvested and delicately made, this dry Riesling was fermented naturally and given some aging on yeast lees to add the texture and roundness to make it delicious young, if you just can't wait. Otherwise every bit as fresh, vibrant and minerally as you could hope for this great example of dry Central Otago Riesling.

Overview

Riesling

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

Winemaker notes on current 2017 vintage

"The aroma is a quintessential expression of our Pisa terroir with lime sherbet and crisp green apple. The naturally fermented portion provides some interesting depth to the aroma and the palate structure while the 2017 harvest is embodied in the juicy acidity."

92/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Bone-dry riesling with lime, citrus and chalky mineral flavours together with a suggestion of white wildflowers. Assertive acidity drives a lengthy finish. A great match with fresh oysters garnished with lime juice. Needs food 10/10/2017." Drink 2017 - 2023
