Amisfield Estate Pinot Noir 2013
Established in 1988, Amisfield is a based specialist producer of pinot noir and aromatic white wines sourced from fruit grown on its Estate vineyard beneath the Pisa mountain range in the Cromwell Basin, Central Otago. 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.
The 2013 Pinot Noir wine is expressive of its vintage with restrained fruit presence and delicate silky tannins underpinned with a vibrant acidity. The aromas of bright red fruit and hints of cake spice is alluring and measured against its persuasive length on the palate. Drink now or in four to five years.
Amisfield Estate is implementing organic grape growing strategies across their vineyard and is registered as in conversion with New Zealand's leading organic certification body, BioGro.
