Amisfield Chenin Blanc 2016 Central Otago
Very fruity bouquet with aromas of apples and green grapes, a gentle lees layer and soft white spice note, simple, fresh and lively overall. On the palate - frsh, crisp, fruity and dry; flavours of apple s and grapes return with a layer of white peach and a hint of spice; a wine in the very early stages of development requiring some months to begin to show its true potential. Balanced and well made - typical for this producer. Drink from late Summer 2017 through 2025.
Amisfield Pinot Gris 2016 Central Otago
Generous, lush and fruity bouquet with aromas of fresh pear and apple, some quince and peach then a layer of silty mineral earthy qualities and a light white spice. On the palate - just dry with some light sweetness, a core of ripe fruit and medium+ acidity adding crunch and freshness. This wine will reward from now and through 2020 if stored well. Fresh, crisp, balanced and well made.
