Amisfield Pinot Noir Central Otago 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Amisfield Farm is located 7km north of Lowburn near the shores of Lake Dunstan in Central Otago. Amisfield have 60 hectares of vineyards. High altitude, cool climate, long summers, and clean soils allow the winery to produce some of the best Pinot Noirs and aromatic white wines in New Zealand. Yields are kept low to provide concentrated fruit flavour with complexity derived from the range of sites within the vineyard. The winemaking approach is one of minimal intervention. Supple and concentrated, Amisfield Pinot Noir shows the complexity, concentration and texture of great new world Pinot Noir. This is classic Central Otago Pinot with dark rich fruits, spicy aromas and undertones of liquorice and smoke. Finished in a rich palate with fine silky tannins. This wine will only improve with careful cellaring for up to 5 years, but hard to resist when drinking superbly on release.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

...the 2007 Pinot Noir (matured 25% in new oak barriques) is turning into a fine Central Otago Pinot with oodles of ripe strawberry, raspberry and wild hedgerow on the nose with hints of dried fruit. The palate is well-balanced, quite dense and rich,... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from Otago in New Zealand. 2007 Amisfield Pinot Noir 750ml
