A classy example of Kiwi Gris that is opulently aromatic with subtle fruit sweetness.

Pinot Gris

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

94/100 and "Excellent", Cameron Douglas MS

"Varietal and pure fruited bouquet with scents of fresh green pear and crisp red apple, there’s a saline mineral quality with an oyster shell and stony soil quality. Floral, youthful and bright. Equally engaging on the palate with flavours of white spice and white fleshed fruits then mineral. The texture is fine and satin-like with contrasting acidity and core fruit flavours. Balanced, taut, youthful and well made. Best drinking from 2022 through 2025+."

93/100 Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)

"Pure, pristine pinot gris with ripe tree fruit, apple and pear flavours, together with a seasoning of ginger from yeast lees contact. Silken-textured wine with just a hint of sweetness balanced by gentle acidity. An attractive wine made with a light touch."
