    Once or twice a year a Pinot Noir deal will land in our laps that’s just so, so good we have to jump into it boots ‘n’ all and scream it from the rooftops. Heads up – this is one of those!

    A label refresh means this Central Otago producer has slashed stocks of their 5 Star, 93/100 rated Central Otago Pinot called “Big Backyard” – and boy are you in for a treat with this one. This wine has been selling just under the $30 per bottle mark, it’s now up for grabs at a snip under $20. It’s nuts!

    In his 93/100 review, Wine Orbit’s Sam Kim said “Gorgeously complex and lifted, the wine shows dark plum, cherry, tapenade, roasted nut and truffle aromas on the nose, followed by a wonderfully weighted palate that is silky and persistent. It’s generous, flavoursome and refined with a lengthy smooth finish. At its best: now to 2025.”

    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. Grab a case, tell your mates, you’ll be back for two or three more!
