About

Amisfield is an Estate that was formed around a simple philosophy: to nurture nature at every step. Amisfield Estate is situated beneath the dramatic, glacially sculpted Pisa mountain range in Central Otago – New Zealand’s most spectacular wine region. The rugged inland location affords a semi-continental climate,with exceptionally cold winters, and hot summers with cool evenings and low rainfall- this unforgiving environment gives generously to flavour. The unique growing conditions combined with glacially derived gravel-driven soils, a north-facing aspect and shelter from the most extreme winds, yield wines of remarkable purity, intensity and vibrancy. At Amisfield they are committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility at every step of the process.

WineCitrus dominates the palate, think pink grapefruit and sweet lemon with familiar passionfruit. Refreshing crunchy acidity and oh so easy to quaff.
