Awesome lineup of Campari substitutes last post by Michael Markarian, Jeremy Eubanks and Eitan Spivak. I especially appreciate the Gran Classico suggestion - I freaking love that stuff. So tasty!
This week: Key geographical features of Central Otago. What shapes the landscape?
Check out Bryce Wiatrak's post on Otago for a a great breakdown of what's going on there currently!
Not a geographic feature, but interesting nonetheless.
Most of Central, and the Cromwell basin in particular, is covered in aromatic plants, especially wild thyme, lavender, and some rosemary. For whatever reason, much of the Pinot Noir grown there has a strong, resiny/herbal finish very reminiscent of that wild thyme.
