Wine: Amisfield Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Awarded: Champion Sauvignon Blanc & Gold 2018
Region: Central Otago
Notes: Stop the press, a champion Sauvignon Blanc from Otago? I though they just made Pinot Noir’s. That is where you would be wrong. The dynamic landscapes and vineyards in Otago produce a stunning array of great wines aside from their Pinot Noir fame.
The tropical fruit filled vibrancy of this wine, combined with a clever mineral maturity balances this wine particularly well.
Drinking really well currently as a young sav, but will age gracefully as the complexity unfolds. Grab a case and keep tasting between now and 2023 for the full story.
