AMISFIELD PN 06
Named one of the Worlds 30 Best Pinots by Food &>c Wine Magazine; May 2008. Last year was a stunning vintage for the south; and Amisfield has a minimalist intervention approach to winemaking. This wine is a faithful expression of terroir. Deep ruby/magenta - it just reeks class. Smell the dark cherries; violets; mocha and spice and all things nice. Powerful lush suggestions of cocoa; cedar and minerals. Delightful with duck; but I d be happy to pour it on my cereal. >c John Hawkesby; Top 10 Wines of 2007; The NZ Herald; 5 Jan 2008bR >cbREstate-grown in the Cromwell Basin and matured in French oak barriques <b25 per cent new>b; the 2006 vintage <b5 stars>b is top-flight. Harvested at 24 to 26 brix; fermented with indigenous yeast and matured in French oak barriques <b25 per cent new>b; its a richly coloured; strikingly floral wine; mouthfilling and highly concentrated; yet very supple and charming. Elegant; vibrant and harmonious; it has great immediacy; yet also the structure to age. >c Michael Coopers Buyers Guide to NZ Wines 2008bR >cbRA Central Otago stunner with a grown not made philosophy. With a hint of Burgundy; barnyard flavours and subtle cherry undertones; this is really special. John Hawkesby; Next Magazine; November 2007
