Winemaker Notes

An abundance of fresh picked cherries on the nose along with hints of violets. This follows through to the palate in combination with light spice from French oak and prolonged length helped by fine-grained tannins.

Critical Acclaim

JS 91
James Suckling
An attractive array of both floral and fruit aromas with red cherries leading through to the palate in fresh, vibrant form. The tannins carry a lot of flavor. Fresh finish.
D 90
Decanter

Dark, pure black fruits with well handled spiced oak. Nicely resolved tannins. Fresh. Scented and slightly jammy red with a backbone of sappy tannins.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Amisfield Pinot Noir offers a complete look at this grape variety as grown in Otago. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers perky aromas and flavors of chalk, mineral, black fruit, and earth. Pair it with grilled lamb chops. (Tasted: August 27, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Amisfield, New Zealand
Amisfield Winery Video

Amisfield was established in 1988 and is a Central Otago based specialist producer of Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines, sourced from fruit grown on their Single Vineyard Estate, situated beneath the glacially sculptured Pisa mountain range.  

Vineyards are managed holistically through organic practices focused around nurturing Amisfield’s unique soils, vines and habitats - this combined with a rugged inland location and an extreme semi-continental climate, yields wines of remarkable purity, intensity and vibrancy. 

A state-of-the-art purpose built winery is the focal point of the vineyard and is designed to enable winemakers to craft wines with minimal intervention and as naturally as possible.

Home to the globe’s most southerly vineyards, which are cultivated below the 45th parallel, Central Otago is a true one-of-a-kind wine growing region, but not only because of its extreme location.

Central Otago is more dependent on one single variety than any other region in New Zealand—and it isn’t Sauvignon blanc. They don’t even make Sauvignon blanc there.

Pinot Noir claims nearly 75% of the region’s vineyards with Pinot Gris coming in a far second place and Riesling behind it. This is also New Zealand’s only wine region with a continental climate, giving it more diurnal and seasonal temperature shifts than any other.

The subregion of Bannockburn has enjoyed the most success historically but the area’s exceptional growth has moved to the promising regions of Cromwell/Bendigo and Alexandra districts. Central Otago is known for its fruity and full-bodied Pinot noir. With the freedom to experiment here, growers and winemakers are easily exhibiting the area’s great potential.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
