Amisfield Pinot Gris 2020
- Pinot Gris
- New Zealand, 750ml
A fresher style of Pinot Gris this year. Cool growing conditions helped retain bright green pear and red apple fruit aromatics, with a touch of ginger and spice from a portion of barrel fermentation. The palate shows simialr flavours, matched to a fine acidity that draws out length. A gentle sweetness balances the finish.

Amisfield's unique terroir and unforgiving environment produces wines of remarkable purity, intensity and vibrancy. Hand harvested, fermented in tank and naturally in large and small format French oak.
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.
