    Set against the backdrop of the majestic Pisa mountain range, Amisfield is one of the largest single estate vineyards in Central Otago. Their simple philosophy is to nurture nature at every step and our hands-off approach means that their process takes time, with wines yielding exceptional purity, intensity and vibrancy.

    Central Otago experienced a moderately warm year with lower yields brought about small concentrated berries with wonderful tannins, structure and a tight acid line. Dark fruits, cherries and baking spices are present through a combination of whole bunch and whole berry fermented fruit. Coiled and savoury, the wine offers wonderful aging potential. The wine was aged in French oak barriques on lees for 14 months before blending to showcase the best of the vintage and estate for 2021. Classic Pisa sub regional flavours of deep, plush dark and cherry fruits complemented by a mineral streak. A structural, earthy palate brought on by the low yielding vintage adds a complex savoury edge that allows the wine to evolve in bottle and age extremely well.

    Intense, fragrant, vibrant wine with cassis, black cherry, dark chocolate, wood smoke, violet and spicy oak flavours supported by firm, ripe tannins that suggest good ageing potential. The wine opened up as it sat in the glass and would benefit from decanting. Drink 2023–2035 - Bob Campbell, The Real Review, 95 Points
