Made from handpicked fruit off our home Hinakura Vineyard, the newly-released 2020 vintage has a delightful bouquet of ripe dark raspberry, black cherry and dark berry fruits, with hints of violet, liquorice, thyme and savoury, spicy notes on a well-structured, elegant palate with plenty of fruit weight.

This is a concentrated full-bodied and deeply coloured pinot noir. The wine has vibrancy, energy and power with a smooth finish and great mouthfeel, it should be matched with duck, venison, grilled meat and game dishes over the next five to six years. As a young wine, cellaring will be rewarded with greater complexity.

Alexander Pinot Noir 2019

Our premium fully handcrafted Pinot Noir produced from the very low-yielding 2019 vintage led to a winemaker’s selection of just 4 barrels that fully reflects the terroir of our home vineyard.

Sustainably-grown, handpicked fruit with partial wild-yeast use has produced a very intense, deeply coloured wine with a rich and powerful palate with dark morello cherry and  berryfruit flavours, leading to a smooth and well-balanced long finish with typical savoury complexity and spicy oak notes.

Aged in 25% new French Allier oak barriques for 11 months, this handcrafted and barrel selected wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to seven years. Savour with game, duck, pork and lamb dishes.

Only 100 cases made.

Alexander Merlot 2020

With just 800 vines of the outstanding Bordeaux Clone 481 in our vineyard, production is naturally limited to a maximum of around 85 cases per year dependent on climatic conditions.

The Alexander Merlot 2020 is subtly restrained on the nose with well-concentrated and elegantly packed aromas of ripe blackberries, black plums, spice and cedar. The palate has real power with a sweetly-rich, well-balanced and sustained finish of black fruits with cassis, dark chocolate, liquorice and toasty oak  nuances echoing its’ Bordeaux heritage.

Aged in French oak, 33% new, this young but outstanding wine will benefit from cellaring for up to ten years.

Serve with roast beef, hearty casseroles and a surprisingly great accompaniment to a dark chocolate tart.

Very limited availability.
