Alexander Pinot Noir 2021

Our premium fully handcrafted Pinot Noir produced from a winemaker’s selection of just 7 barrels that fully reflects the terroir of our home vineyard and highlights the best of the pinot noir we produce each year.

The 2021 vintage was a very low-yielding harvest with smaller bunches giving a high skin to juice ratio for winemaking. This sustainably-grown, handpicked fruit with partial wild-yeast use has produced a powerful and deeply coloured wine with highly concentrated dark morello cherry and berry-fruit 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 wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for seven years plus. Savour with game, duck, beef and lamb dishes..

Alexander Dusty Road Pinot Noir 2022

Made from handpicked fruit off our home Hinekura Vineyard, the newly-released 2022 vintage has a full nose of ripe dark raspberry and cherry fruits, with hints of violet, liquorice, thyme and savoury, spicy notes on a well-structured palate with good fruit weight.

This is a medium-bodied and deeply-coloured typical Martinborough pinot noir with lively acidity and supple tannins. With “natural winemaking” in mind, it was bottled with minimal filtration and some light deposits may occur. This wine 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 Merlot 2021

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 2021 is deeply scented 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 with a well-balanced finish 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 with just 50 cases produced for this vintage.
