Bob Campbell - MW Bob Campbell, July 2010
Soft rich and reasonably silken Pinot Noir that achieves more concentration and a better texture than most Central Otago wines from this vintage. It displays an array of red fruit spice chocolate and new leather flavours...

It displays an array of red fruit spice chocolate and new leather flavours. Amisfield Pinot Noir has achieved a remarkable consistency in style and quality with this wine over many vintages.

Lithe and inviting offering a harmonious style that balances cherry plum and fresh fig flavors against fine tannins and lively balance. Drink now through 2017. -Harvey Steiman

I reckon this wine has a fair bit to offer. It's fleshy and fruity and not at all lacking in the flavour department - as we've come to expect from Central Otago pinot noir. It offers a decent mouthful of cherry-plum fruit... I reckon this wine has a fair bit to offer. It's fleshy and fruity and not at all lacking in the flavour department - as we've come to expect from Central Otago pinot noir. It offers a decent mouthful of cherry-plum fruit flavour and while these flavours have a gentle sweetness - as you'd expect from ripe fruit - I'd almost call it a savoury style due to its earthy spicy highlights. But what i really like about this wine is its chalky tannin and indeed chalky flavour through the finish. It gives it something extra.
