A Pinot Noir as compelling as the story of Kalex Wines founder, Alex Kaufman. A triumph amidst adversity as the marketing goes.
Made from fruit from Alexandra & Bendigo sub regions, and crafted by well known winemaker Theo Coles, it shows bright red fruits with gentle herbal notes on a background of spicy oak. Wonderfully textured, it has lovely silken tannins and great drive. Top label, quality Central Otago Pinot Noir at this price is crazy value!
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Rose Petals, smoke & red fruits dominate the aromas of this textural, layered Pinot Noir. The palate is silky, savoury, and seductive – spice & lifted red fruits. Minimal sulphur added and Unfiltered & Unfined."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"It's gorgeously fruited and sweetly expressed on the nose showing dark cherry, raspberry, floral, olive and toasted spice notes, leading to a succulent palate that's wonderfully rounded and supple. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and fleshy texture, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2024."
