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.

Not rated yet. The 2016 vintage was Winestate's top NZ gris. We think this one is just as good. Winemakers comments: Our Pinot Gris is made from fruit grown on our Tiger and Sinclair vineyards in the Parkburn area of Cromwell. All the grapes are hand harvested and fermented in small lots in stainless steel tanks helping to retain fruit purity and finesse. The wine is full, dry and textural, it displays excellent fruit structure, intensity and mineral length. wine description: The aroma displays ripe quince and pear fruit notes with dried herb and white spice in the background giving a pleasant lift. The wine is full, textural and dry on the...
"I found jasmine, apricot blossom, anise, papaya, mango and many more displayed like a peacock’s tail on the wine’s lengthy finish. This knocks spots off the best Alsace Pinot Gris I’ve tasted" BC
Green citrus theme with back-up dancers in the shape of mango, guava and peach. A great demonstration of why Dry River is acknowledged as the finest producer of this varietal in the land of the long white cloud...RR4WEA
Light golden in the glass, the nose an array of cloves, pear, marzipan, honey dew and orange zest. A substantial and powerful palate, initially smooth rounded stone-fruit, progressing to a core of chalky phenolic, expanding into a very long pure finish. Wonderful now, especially with food, or age for four plus years. REVIEWS & ACCOLADES 19/20 Raymond Chan Bright straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, broad and voluminous with deep and rich aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits along with nuances of tropical fruits and exotic florals,nuances of honeysuckle, and steel, mouthwatering minerals.

Light golden in colour with a nose of fresh stone fruits, wild fennel and hints of cream. The palate flows with fine-grained phenolics, integrated fruit-laden acidity and an abundance of Nashi pear and white peach flavours. REVIEWS & ACCOLADES 5 stars - Raymond Chan 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...
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...
2016 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.
A gorgeous pinot gris… 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. 5 Stars - Wine Orbit NZ 5 Stars - Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Zingy aromas of pear, grapefruit zest and cherry blossom on the nose lead to a long and vibrant palate of crunchy pear, fresh lime and baked apple which is complemented by a creamy mouth filling texture and mineral finish.
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.
