"Fruit is sourced from various parcels across Amisfield Estate vineyards and a barrel selection is chosen by our winemakers as most representative of our site and of the vintage." Amisfield 

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.
