Central Otago Pinot Sample Pack
Winery : Various
New Zealand's Central Otago region comprises several sub-regions, all of which bestow particular style characteristics in the wines. Gibbston is noted for plummy flavours and structure; the wines of Cromwell basin and Wanaka are sweetly scented and openly textured; Bannockburn pinots show exceptional harmony and balance; Alexandra at 46S is famous for brilliant aromatics; and Bendigo with its elevated barren slopes, produces powerful pinots of depth.
