Winemaker's Notes:

On release this is a classic Amisfield Pinot Noir showing the hallmark characteristics of dark fruits, leather & spice with an underlying hint of savory earthiness. The palate is crammed with deep ripe fruits, fine grained tannins reminiscent of good quality dark chocolate and lively acidity to give the wine life & length. Definitely a keeper from this stable.

Drink with rack of lamb in our famous Bistro, served with wilted spinach, raisins and toasted pinenuts.

My Notes:

About Amisfield:

Amisfield Vineyard is a producer of fine wine from the Lowburn area of New Zealand's Central Otago region. The region is renowned for producing world class Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines. Nestled between Amisfield and Parkburn streams planing commenced in 1999 and now consists of over 100 acres planted to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc with considerable expansion possibilities.

The winemaking approach at Amisfield is one of minimal impact on the extraordinary fruit produced from season to season, making the wines a natural expression of the land from which they are created. The overriding winemaking philosophy revolves around the fact that quality wine is grown not made.
