RADICAL WINERY CLEARANCE | PERFECTLY BOTTLE AGED, CENTRAL OTAGO PINOT NOIR NOW UNDER $20.
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Elite Central Otago producer Kalex is clearing their old label stocks. This truly excellent Pinot Noir is now $19.99 with the Advintage Advantage and everyone who buys it will wish they'd bought more.
USA based business magnate Alex Kaufman has made the hard call to re-brand his Central Otago wine venture and is drastically clearing old label stocks. From a quality perspective, Kalex sits at the top tier of Central Otago winemaking and to say we were excited about this opportunity is the understatement of the year. We looked through the entire range before making our Kalex purchase decisions and we are thrilled to bring this excellent 2015 Pinot Noir to you. There is no doubt that winemaker Theo Coles has done a brilliant job with this vintage. Bottle aged and only now entering its perfect drinking window, it is plush and rounded in the mouth with generous layers of gamey, cherry flavours and excellent length. Now under $20 with the Advintage Advantage this is exemplary buying and this 2015 release will cellar beautifully over the coming 5+ years. Stock is limited. Buy with our highest recommendation.
Sam Kim writes "FIVE STARS: Attractively fruited and beautifully lifted, the bouquet shows dark cherry, game, fragrant spice, walnut and mushroom characters, leading to a juicy palate that’s smooth and supple. It’s finely textured and delightfully polished for lovely drinking".
