Amisfield Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2021 (12 Bottles) Central Otago

by Red+White Cellar 0 orders



A vintage with low yield and small berries, led to a wonderfully concentrated yet elegant and restrained wine. White flowers, florals, lemongrass and kaffir lime are present on the nose. The palate shows great intensity and focus, with passionfruit and smokey oak coming to the fore. The textural nature of barrel fermentation and aging is framed by vibrant acidity allowing for great drive and length.

Hand-harvested and whole bunch pressed, the juice settled in tank for 24 hours before being transferred to French oak barrels (20% new). The ferments were completed using the natural yeast present and the wines went through partial malolactic fermentation in spring. The wine was allowed to mature in oak for 16 months with very little disturbance before bottling.
