Alexander Dusty Road 2019 Martinborough Pinot Noir
We introduce the 2019. Firstly it comes with a warning: NZ Wine growers undertook a study of the 2019 Pinot Noir vintage across Aotearoa. It's conclusions are very much reflected in this gem.
The research showed colour levels were some 300% greater than 2018 and residual density was 250% higher. 'BIG' wines resulted and this one of them. We drank it over two nights and WOW. Huge flavours the first night, massive and a charming delight the second. Smooth in every way in a powerful wrapping. All the classic Pinot Noirs characters are there, all will need a little time to unfold to perfection. This is a perfect cellar proposition. A stunning wine in waiting.
The 2018 was a Huge hit at Primo Vino. Massive. It was also Michael Coopers Wine Buy of the Year in his 2020 Wine Companion.
