Alexander Dusty Road Pinot Noir

“Potential Classic NZ Wine” (Michael Cooper)

Alexander Dusty Road Pinot Noir

2020, Martinborough New Zealand
  • Full bodied, rich and dark style Pinot of real class
  • 5 Stars (Michael Cooper) and rated as a "Potential Classic NZ Wine”
  • Family owned, boutique Martinborough vineyard
  • RRP $29


    From a boutique Martinborough (that’s the Wairarapa…aka north of Wellington) family owned and operated estate run by Michael Finucane and Roz Walker.

    Michael admits “I’m very cynical about wine competitions“. Shhhhh…don’t tell him, but the last vintage was Michael Cooper’s Best Buy Red of the Year and also won a Gold medal at the NZ International Wine Show 2019!

    This is the latest 2020 release and it’s already picked up another 5 Star rating from Michael Cooper as well as being his “Wine of the Week” in July 2021.

    This is all hand picked fruit from their Hinakura Vineyard. Aged 11 month in oak it’s a full bodied, dark and powerful style Pinot packed with dark berry and cherry fruit flavours, licorice and spice. It’s absolutely delicious and we’re sure if Michael did pop this one into wine shows, it’d come away with bling!

    This’ll comfortably cellar for several years yet so enjoy some now, tuck some away for another day.
