Quantity:

Long considered one of Central Otago's very best Rosés the new vintage of Amisfield has arrived and she's a beauty. With good concentration of cherry and berry fruit and a touch of spice, it has lovely weight and gentle creaminess on the palate with a lick of minerality giving it freshness and length.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Grown within the Waenga silty loam soils of our lower terraces the Pinot Noir vines for our Rose express opulent berry flavours with a light tannin profile.

Hand-harvested fruit was coldsoaked for 24 or 48hrs before pressing the coloured juice off the grape skins. The juice was fermented cool using selected aromatic yeast. A small portion was fermented in old French oak barriques to add a hint of caramel to the palate.

Vibrant pomegranate and watermelon aromas. The palate has complexity and softness complimented by fresh red berry sorbet notes and a lingering, dry finish".


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Intense, ripe and fruity rosé aromas with cherry, red plum and cranberry. A floral scent of roses adds complexity. Equally intense on the palate with an added layer of spice and crushed rock minerality. Cheery and red apple, cranberry and plum flavours remain strong. Fresh and crisp with medium+ acidity, some delicate fine tannins and nice finish. Well made and ready for Summer 2019. Best from today and through 2020".


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Estate-grown and hand-harvested in the Cromwell Basin, and mostly handled in tanks (4 per cent barrel-fermented), the delicious 2018 vintage has an inviting, bright pink hue. Made in a slightly off-dry style (6.1 grams/litre of residual sugar), it has fresh, lively strawberry, watermelon, plum and spice flavours, showing a distinct touch of complexity, balanced acidity, and excellent depth and harmony".


4 Stars Cuisine Rosé Tasting, December 2018 (2018 Vintage)
​​​​​​​"The wine has a vibrant pink colour with aromas of cinnamon and fresh dianthus. The flavours are ripe with an elegant line and an off-dry finish".
