Amisfield Vintage Brut 2019


One of the best NZ Vintage fizz about. Made by the ever so popular Amisfield stable in Central.  This bubbly starts to play a Champagne game but with a NZ twist.

"Complex and quite elegant, there’s a core nutty quality leading to aromas of fresh citrus and stone fruit scents. The lees autolysis suggest fresh baked goods carrying a mineral quality. A full and richly textured wine on the palate with a volumous mousse that is persistent with a fine bubble. The finish is eqaully impressive with flavours that mirror the bouquet along with the touch of spice. Fresh, balanced and well made. A wine to drink now or continue to cellar. best drinking from 2022 through 2030. 95 Points & Outstanding, Cameron Douglas

The wine shows delicate quince, peach and apricot fruit on the nose, matched with toasted brioche on the palate from the extended (26 month) tirage time. A lower dosage balances with the fresh acidity, making it a perfect apertitif style of sparkling wine. Winery
