Alexandra Wine Tasting Day Tour
Highlights of the tour
The Central Otago Wine Region is the home of internationally recognized, award winning wines and has 5 sub-regions.
The Alexandra Basin is the southernmost sub-region and has a particular set of environmental factors that create ideal conditions for Pinot Noir and aromatic white wines.
Surrounded by rocky outcrops, very high diurnal variation, long hot, dry summers and cold winters – the wines from this sub-region are exceptionally aromatic with big, mouth-filling flavours. Pinot Noir grown here is elegant and complex with herbaceous undertones and rich berry fruit flavours. White wines such as Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris also flourish in this area so there are plenty of options to taste!
