Central Otago Wine Tasting

This year's Central Otago Wine Tasting is being held at Brett's Wharf on 16 June 2009.

If you're a fan of pinot noir, or New Zealand wine, then I suggest you pop over to taste the wines on offer. Central Otago is probably best known at the moment for its pinot noir. I'm not the world's greatest fan of the Central Otago style, but I love pinot, so I'll be going. I went last year and thought the night was excellent. In particular, it was probably the best food I've ever had a stand up wine tasting. Hopefully the food is up to the same high standard this year.

Participating wineries include Carrick, Amisfield, Mount Edward, Mt Difficulty, Olssens and Sam Neill's Two Paddocks.

Tickets are $30, available from The Wine Emporium.

Sounds like a fair list. Should be a good night, although it is a shame that Wild Earth aren't on that list.

I went to a recent tasting myself and it's pinot rose and riesling are memorable. The pinot gris was not so great. Like yourself, I am not the biggest fan of the region's pinot although I was impressed with the Wild Earth Pinot Noir 05.

Worth a look.

Thanks for the tip - I'll have to keep an eye out for Wild Earth on the wine shop racks
