    One of the Pinot deals of the year so far. And that’s saying something, ‘cos there have been some banging good deals being cleared as part of a massive label refresh by the Kalex winery down there in Central Otago.

    This is a 95/100 rated Central Pinot of the highest quality – crafted to sell for $40 (and once you’ve tried it you’ll see why). But with the winery trying to clear the last of their stocks the knives are out, and the price has been slashed to $19.99. This is crazy for a Pinot of this quality!

    In his 95/100 review, Wine Orbit’s Sam Kim said “Complex, engaging and savoury, the wine shows dark berry, charcuterie, dried herb and toasted nut aromas on the nose, leading to an elegantly weighted palate that’s finely textured and persistent. Beautifully detailed and multi-layered with a lengthy seductive finish. At its best: now to 2029.”

    Kalex are a premium Central Otago producer founded by Alex Kaufman, a Polish American businessman, entrepreneur and holocaust survivor. He arrived in the US with nothing but the clothes on his back and a quarter in his shoe. His later success in business and love for wine lead him to NZ and specifically Central Otago, where he started the Kalex label.

    With the price of fruit in Otago going up quality Central Pinots at this price are dime a dozen. First class, Central Pinot at half price. Bonkers. Grab a case, tell your mates, you’ll be back for two or three more!
