A fresh and classic Chenin Blanc from Central Otago. Amisfield apply their usual class and expertise to this promising variety, bringing the fresh tree fruit and stony minerality to a just off-dry palate similar to classic wines from the Loire. Refreshing but with the grape's inherent power and complexity, the Amisfield in one of the country's best.

Overview

Grape

Chenin 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 (2018 vintage)

"Vibrant and attractive bouquet suggesting white flowers, apples and citrus. As with other Amisfield wines this example shows a distinctive core of minerality with a wet stone and silica . Crisp, refreshing and dry on the palate. A light saline note then flavours of silica, white fleshed fruit and citrus. Fairly lengthy finish, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2025."

91/100 Bob Campbell MW (2018 vintage)

"Dry and moderately weighty, smooth-textured chenin blanc with green apple, mineral, lime and citrus flavours. Slightly chalky wine with subtle hay and straw accents. Should develop well."
