Bob Campbell MW "A smooth-textured wine with weight and an appealing mouth-feel...Dry pinot gris, with plenty of yeast lees character giving a baked bread, brioche character to the wine. Apple and pear fruit flavours are also evident." 91 points. Amisfield was established in 1988, and has built up a reputation for quality wines, especially Pinot Noir. Their state-of-the-art purpose built winery is the focal point of the vineyard, and gathered global attention when visited by Will and Kate on their Royal tour of New Zealand.

5 stars Sam Kim. Gold Medal, China Wine and Spirits Awards, 2015. The 2015 Le Phant Blanc is a blend of Pinot Gris (48%), Viognier (47%) and Gewurztraminer (5%) from our coastal Te Awanga Vineyard. The grapes were hand harvested, whole-bunch pressed and co-fermented. A small proportion was barrel fermented and the rest in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks. This distinctive blend of aromatic white varieties brings together subtle spicy characters and floral notes with excellent freshness and texture.
The 2016 Pinot Gris is produced from our Te Awanga Estate vineyard. The wine displays the hallmark characteristics of this exciting variety. Aromas of white peach and pear are displayed on the nose. It is a soft and elegant Pinot Gris with a well-balanced rich palate.

"Bright, even straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues. The nose is softly rich and concentrated with well-packed aromas of white and yellow stonefruits along with honied notes and yellow florals, and a suggestion of spice. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has soft, rich flavours of white and yellow stonefruits and subtle notes of honey and exotic florals. The palate has a rounded and unctuous texture with balanced, integrated acidity, underlined by some alcoholic power and drive. The wine flows smoothly to a lingering finish of stonefruits and honey. This is a softly rich and unctuous dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit, honey...
Notes from Duncan: This Gruner Veltliner is medium weight in a dry style. Floral, white pepper, and pip-fruit aromas on the nose , similar fruit flavours including spice and pears come through on the palate, all underpinned by mineral characters and refreshing acidity. We aim to produce wines of purity, precision and balance with a clear resonance of flavour. The wine is drinking extremely well now but can be cellared with confidence for two to four years. A fruit driven style of Gruner Veltliner with a luscious texture. This Gruner Veltliner is organically produced, Bio Gro Certified, and is made from a Single Estate Vineyard, Morrison...
2015 Pinot Gris Rockburn Pinot Gris features ripe peach, nectarine and Nashi pear aromas, heralding a vibrantly fruity off-dry palate. This combined with a very long, zesty finish complements rich or light seafood meals or most Asian-spiced cuisine, though its extraordinary versatility should be experienced over a wide range of dishes. This wine is drinking very well now and is expected to mellow over the next 3-4 years.
Raymond Chan 94 points. A gorgeous pinot gris; grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, then fermented in seasoned oak barrels using indigenous yeasts. The fragrant and complex bouquet shows baked pear, mango, orange peel and spice characters, leading to a succulent palate that is concentrated and richly textured. This hugely appealing wine is elegantly opulent and very delicious. At its best: now to 2020.
Zingy aromas of Nashi pear, grapefruit zest and cherry blossom on the nose lead to a long and vibrant palate of crunchy Williams pear, fresh lime and baked apple which is complemented by a creamy mouth filling texture and mineral finish.
