Established in 1988, Amisfield is a prominent winemaker in the heart of New Zealand's Central Otago region. With the estate spanning over 80 hectares, they have cultivated a reputation for producing high-quality wines that reflect the area's unique terroir. Amisfield uses sustainable practices, employing organic and biodynamic methods in the vineyard. While the winery focuses on Pinot Noir, a flagship grape variety in Central Otago, their Sauvignon Blanc adds a distinctive touch to their portfolio and is very, very good. Known for its crisp acidity and vibrant fruit flavors, Amisfield's Sauvignon Blanc has become a standout expression of the varietal in the region, especially for the money, contributing to the winery's position as a respected player in the New Zealand wine scene.
This classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Amisfield rivals the best made at a fraction of their peer's prices, and to get a 95 from Decanter for a $20 bottle is really special. There is tremendous price quality here at a time when it's getting harder and harder to find good buys. A great upcoming wine for the holiday festivities, this is a serious Sauvignon Blanc worth stocking up on.
Decanter 95 pts! "Punchy grapefruit, peach, and vibrant herbal notes with a zingy line of citrus peel acidity; incredibly varietal and precise with a long, abiding finish. Spectacular!"
