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!

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

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Rich, concentrated sauvignon blanc with vibrant passionfruit, guava, citrus, grapefruit and red capsicum flavours. Power and purity with a mouth-watering acid backbone and an impressively lingering finish 15 JUL 2021." Drink 2021 -2024

94/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"Pure, fragrant, varietal and distinctive with aromas of citrus and sweet green herbs, green pear and pineapple, white flowers and cold stone minerality. On the palate flavours of peach and citrus, tree fruits and fresh herbs. Textures from ripe acidity and fine lees deliver a lively mouthfeel contrasted by the core of fruit and surrounded by minerality. A delicious wine with a pure expression, tropical twist and lengthy finish. Best drinking from purchase and through 2026+."

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."
