Overview

Amisfield Sauvignon Blanc embraces the best in old and new world winemaking. A wine of subtle power and complexity. A modern classic. Elderflower, gooseberry and cassis dominate the aromas touched by a faint whiff of gunflint from barrel fermentation.The palate is full bodied and dry with great intensity of fruit balanced by refreshing acidity. This is a serious Sauvignon that is ideally suited to fresh seafood or with artisan cheeses such as chevre.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

If you can imagine lying in freshly cut green grass while enjoying a picnic fruit salad of vibrant passionfruit and tropical fruit then you can envision what we have tried to capture in the glass.

Palate

The restrained touch of integrated oak combines well with the sweet fruit and flinty minerality giving the palate a lingering dry finish which will make it a great food accompaniment.

Cellaring

Although best drunk young, this complex style of Sauvignon is capable of ageing racefully. Will keep for up to 4 years.

Food Matching

Easy to match to variety of foods, try a pan fried firm fish such as groper and some spring asparagus.
