MEGADEAL: BIN END CENTRAL OTAGO SAUVIGNON BLANC CLEARANCE | a rare chance to buy this Amisfield release at a heavily discounted price.
92 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS "balanced, well made and ready to enjoy upon purchase."
Top brand Central Otago Sauvignon Blanc deals are hard to come by - let alone one by iconic producer Amisfield - so we jumped when this exciting opportunity crossed our desks. Lake Hayes may be Amisfield's entry label but it comes with a well-won quality reputation and this 2020 Sauvignon is in absolutely brilliant form. With fruit sourced from a stony terrace in the Pisa sub-region, it is juicy and vibrant with all the zesty hallmarks of premium deep south sauvignon blanc.
Now under $15 on case buys, it is sensational buying; soft and rounded with dialled down acidity - but still carrying those classic, punchy sauvignon blanc flavours that Kiwis adore. This is classy wine. We think it's a more refined, elegant version of the ubiquitous Marlborough Sauvignon model and we're big fans. What a deal. Get your share.
The winery writes "Classic, punchy Sauvignon Blanc. The cool vintage has given strong pineapple and cape gooseberry aromatics, which lead on to an intense palate with bright, balanced acidity. The finish is juicy, long and satisfying."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Pungent bouquet with vivid aromas of tropical fruits and lemon with a soft sweet herbaceous scent and stony mineral seam. Youthful on the palate - dry, crisp, tense and loaded with flavours of citrus and apple, fresh herbs and a fruit spice, wet stone minerality, passionfruit and pineapple. Plenty of acidity carrying all the flavours and refreshing the palate, balanced, well made and ready to enjoy upon purchase and through 2023+."
Great non-Marlb Savvy
Bright and clean. A beautiful example from Pisa
