From Kalex wines, Alex K Five Boroughs Pinot Noir is (was) a premium export label for them. As they sell through their stocks, this label was presented to us and we were impressed enough to grab as much of it as we could. A bit richer, fuller, more dark cherry than the Kalex 2019, this is a style we know you will love!
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Five Boroughs – referencing the 5 Central Otago sub-regions from whence we source the fruit for the 'Premium" Pinot Noir and a term for the neighbourhoods that make up New York city, our owner's home town.
Violet petal, red fruits and sun-baked schist aromas. Spice and red fruits on the palate with a silky, savoury and seductive finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Beautifully composed and expressed, the wine shows dark cherry, thyme, toasted spice and subtle vanilla notes on the nose, leading to a delightfully weighted palate that delivers succulent fruit flavours together with spicy nuances, backed by fine tannins, making it immediately appealing and drinkable. At its best: now to 2024."
