Trophy for Champion Sauvignon Blanc – New Zealand Organic Wine Awards 2018
Gold Medal – New Zealand Organic Wine Awards 2018


Made to drink young Amisfield Sauvignon Blanc embraces the best in old and new world winemaking. Hand harvested and whole cluster pressed, the majority undergoes cool fermentation in stainless steel. A small portion is further vine ripened to achieve very high concentration, wild fermented in older French Burgundy oak and less stirred for 3 months. Once blended the components complement each other to achieve a wine of subtle power and complexity. A modern classic; a wine of depth and texture balanced with all the aromatics you would expect from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Ripe tropical fruit characters and complex aromatics of citrus. Pink grapefruit and passionfruit dominate the palate with a defined mineral finish."


94/100 Bob Campbell MW, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Pure and powerful sauvignon blanc in a typical Central Otago style with citrus, lime, subtle tree and tropical fruit flavours plus a suggestion of struck flint mineral character. An ethereal character and appealing sweet-and-acid tension. Drink 2017 – 2020."


4 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Most people don’t realise that some of New Zealands best sauvignon blanc can be found the further south you go. Dr Stephanie Lambert and her team at Amisfield, near Lake Hayes have created a classic example oozing green bean, green capsicum, green herbs, sweet pea and serious amounts of citrus.  Full, fat and firing on all cylinders, it’s a complex, mineral-heavy example that’ll have you smacking your lips lickety-split."


89/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Tropical fruit scents, passionfruit, banana skins, faint pepper, some light nuttiness. Exotic kind of entry to the wine. Slippery texture, some richer, riper fruit flavours, soft in the palate, watery kind of finish but feels pleasant anyway. Nice drinking experience."
