A beautiful Sauvignon Blanc from Central Otago. In a region that's undervalued for this variety, Amisfield do one of the best. Packed with precise aromatics and flavours, it also enjoys a superb elegance and stony-mineral freshness. Crisp and alpine -- a lovely way to do Sauvignon Blanc!

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

92/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"There’s no mistaking the power and impact of this wine - with fresh green herbs, thyme & sage then an abundance of white fleshed fruits - apple and green pear then grapefruit and just a touch of tropical fruit. A floral and stony mineral layer adds depth and complexity. On the palate - crisp, fresh, fruity and dry. Flavours mirror the nose with plenty of acidity and freshness, sweet herbs and long finish. Well made and ready to enjoy from today and through 2022." Drink 2020 - 2022

90/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Bright, tangy, aromatic sauvignon blanc with citrus, grapefruit, wet stone, mineral and a suggestion of wood smoke. An intriguing wine in a bone-dry style with a lingering finish. Quite austere. Good food wine (Bluff oysters spring to mind). 18 MAY 2020." Drink 2020 - 2023

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 vintage)

"The classy 2018 vintage (5*), estate-grown at Pisa, was mostly handled in tanks, but a small portion of the blend (4 per cent) was fermented with indigenous yeasts in old French oak barriques. Ripely scented, it is full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with fresh, concentrated tropical-fruit flavours, showing good complexity, tangy acidity, and a finely balanced, long, dry (3.4 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Well worth discovering." Drink 2018 - 2020
