The Real Review Recommended
"Organic Winery of the Year" - NZ Organic Wine Awards

Cameron Douglas MS "Distinctive, varietal, earthy and mineral with a line of new French oak spice and barrel toast. Aromas and flavours include a classic Otago savouriness with bracken and crumbled stone outlined by dark cherry and fresh raspberry flesh, plum and then baking spices of vanilla and clove. Tannins add structure and plenty of mouthfeel as does the acidity."

QWine "Organically farmed, there is plenty of depth but it's not weighty. Slick and silky, dark plums and dark cherries and flanked by pan juices, dancy delicate spices and some mushroom compost. An earthiness cruises through the mid-palate adding another level of interest before grippy, drying cocoa tannins ride out to a sustained finish. I'll have a glass thanks. No, make it two. Smart gear."

Michael Cooper "Concentrated richness and mushroom-like earthiness – juicy and succulent in the palate with cherry sweetness, a sultry savouriness, a touch of chocolate and fruit cake spices – very attractive and generous.

Bob Campbell MW "Luscious, concentrated pinot noir with a mix of floral, plum, dark cherry, cassis and spicy flavours. Dense, silken-textured wine with an unmistakable Central Otago signature. A heady wine that is delicious now but no rush." (2019 vintage)

Cameron Douglas MS "Tense, ripe, varietal and loaded with primary fruit and mineral energy. Bright red and dark cherry, raspberry and redcurrant. Baking spices of oak with a vanilla and cedar suggestion, a whisper of bacon then a quiet wood smoke moment. Quite powerful and youthful on the palate with fruit flavours that reflect the nose, an abundance of tannins and acidity add texture and energy. Lengthy finish with a primary, fruit centric power and contrasting wood and acid structure. Plenty of minerality this wine needs more cellar to really showcase its personality and pinosity." (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "Rich spiced-cherry and fresh red-plum nose with raspberries, violets and smoked-meat elements. The palate has vibrant plum flavor and a smooth sheen of fine, velvety tannin. Fresh and balanced." (2019 vintage)

Bob Campbell MW "Bright, youthful pinot noir with red rose, floral, dark cherry, anise, dried herb, thyme and spicy oak flavours supported by peppery tannins. An elegant wine with obvious cellaring potential" (2018 vintage)

Cam Douglas "Ruby and purple core with a purple rim, bright and shiny appearance. Very youthful bouquet with primary fruit aromas of plums and cherries, moderate intensity scents of oak, fleshy, young, savoury, pretty and inviting. On the palate - Dry, fresh, savoury and textured with a mix of fine to firm tannins, plenty of acidity and a core of fruit. All the raw energy of this wine is on show and needs time to settle in more and begin to harmonise - this is best completed in a cool dark cellar. This wine is also fresh, lively, packed with pinosity and charm and will reward those who decant for service or better still age a little longer with best drinking from later in 2021 through 2026." (2018 vintage)

Decanter Magazine "Highly Commended .......draws you back to the glass again and again. A fine texture and freshness" (2016 vintage)

Bob Campbell MW "A well-proportioned pinot noir.........firmly structured pinot noir with plum, dark cherry and a savoury, earthy, stemmy influence. " (2016 vintage)

Stephen Tanzer "This highly aromatic Pinot Noir finishes with sophisticated tannins and lovely length and grip......From very old gravelly glacial deposits, with little topsoil; vinified with wild yeasts and 10% whole clusters: Fresh medium red. Sappy aromas of wild raspberry, cherry, pepper and menthol. Juicy, dry and youthfully closed, with its intense red fruit flavors energized and supported by a firm mineral unpinning." (2016 vintage)

Wine Spectator "Lush and plush, with raspberry coulis, black cherry compote and red licorice flavors that are robust and juicy. Fresh earth, clove and sage notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2026." (2016 vintage)

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate "Medium-bodied, it delivers a lot of red and blackberry character supported by soft tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing earthy.....Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir gives a nose of black cherries, red currants and red plums with hints of underbrush and violets." (2014 vintage)

Amisfield was established in 1988 and has built up a reputation for quality wines, especially Pinot Noir. Their state-of-the-art purpose built winery is the focal point of the vineyard, and gathered global attention when visited by Will and Kate on their Royal tour of New Zealand.

Established in Central Otago, Amisfield produces beautiful pinot noir and aromatic white wines sourced from fruit grown on its Estate vineyard beneath the Pisa mountain range in the Cromwell Basin. Over 80ha is currently planted, and the majority of the vines are over ten years old. Amisfield philosophy is simple: minimal intervention in the winemaking process and ultimate fruit purity.
Amisfield is currently in conversion to full organic certification with New Zealand’s leading body, BioGro.
