Wine of The Week

In honour of the Royal Visit to the Central Otago based Amisfield Vineyard recently, my wine of the week this week is their 2012 Pinot Gris which I was very pleased to discover in Wellington’s Regional Wine and Spirits.  Well, if it’s good enough for royalty, it’s good enough for me!

Amisfield was established in 1988 and is a Central Otago based specialist producer of Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines sourced from fruit grown on their Estate vineyard beneath the Pisa Mountain range in the Cromwell Basin.

Amisfield wines reflect the company’s grape growing and winemaking philosophy underlining faithful expression of site, minimal winemaking intervention and ultimate fruit purity. Stringent yield management practices deliver concentrated fruit flavour, consistency and complexity derived from the range of soils found on the vineyard.

Their restaurant menu also looks fantastic and I hope to follow the Royal footsteps and sneak in a visit to Amisfield this year.
