Fresh aromatic Riesling delights from Central Otago

The Amisfield winery is located in Central Otago on New Zealand’s South Island and is now one of the specialists in Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines. The grapes also for this dry Riesling all come from Amisfield’s own individual vineyards, which lie below the glacier-formed Pisa Mountain Range. The Riesling plantations are located on the so-called Lochar, a mixture of stony scree and sandy clay. The vineyards are all managed entirely organically, with special attention to maintaining the special soils, vineyards and habitats. This combined with the extreme semi-continental climate produces wines of remarkable clarity, intensity and liveliness.
The Riesling grapes were gently pressed and the must was first left on the skins for 48 hours. Afterwards it was fermented with selected Alsatian yeast strains. Part of the juice was fermented with the so-called pied de cuve, the natural yeast from the vineyard, in order to capture the terroir to a special extent. After fermentation, the Riesling was allowed to lie on the fine yeast (sur lie) for 5 months, which gives it a finely creamy texture.

 

And this is how the Amisfield Dry Riesling tastes

The Amisfield Dry Riesling has lush aromas of jasmine, lime sorbet and green apple. On the palate there are more floral notes. Overall, it is highly aromatic, gives a creamy pleasant mouthfeel with a lively fresh Riesling acidity. This is continued in the long, dry finish.

And the Amisfield Dry Riesling goes well with this

The Amisfiel Dry Riesling goes well with sushi and sashimi. It also does well with avocado salad. It also convinces us to Tandoori Chicken.
