Amisfield owes much of its existence to Pinot Noir, and this is a great way of showcasing the variety in a different style. Made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, this light yet mouth-filling Rose is ideally suited to the warmer months of the year.
The nose picks up fresh floral notes and hints of red berries. Production following the Saignee method (where the juice is bled off after minimal skin contact) has imparted juicy berry fruit flavours before the creamy and layered texture comes to the fore. The balance remains excellent, and will keep you coming back for more!
Central Otago Wine Region
Surrounded by mountains and interlaced with lakes and deep river gorges Central Otago is New Zealand's most spectacular vineyard region. The inland mountainous location, on the 45th parallel, provides a semi-continental climate with extremely cold winters, hot summers, cool night time temperatures and low rainfall. The unique climate combines with glacially derived soils to produce spectacular southern wines which have a purity, intensity and vibrancy highlighting the region's terroir and pure mountain air. The sub-regions of Central Otago are: Wanaka, Cromwell, Lowburn, Pisa, Bendigo, Alexandra, Gibbston and Bannockburn.
