Alex K Pinot Noir 'Big Back Yard 2015 Central Otago
Fresh, fruity and concentrated aromas of freeze-dried raspberry, dark cherry and crushed stone minerality; light to moderate oak spices and complexity. On the palate - dry & fruity with flavours of darker cherry fruits and raspberry plum, some warmth from the alcohol and medium+ acidity, fine to moderate tannins, balanced and well made.Decant for service if possible to enjoy now and through 2020.

Alex K Pinot Noir 'Big Back Yard 2014 Waipara
Fragrant, fruity and finely tuned aromas with a silty soil and ripe fruits fragrance package; red and darker cherry, some sweet raspberry moments, quite floral. On the palate - juicy, fruity, quite fleshy and dry, fine tannins and medium+ acidity, balanced alcohol, moderate wood tones and plenty of mineral undertones. A lovely wine overall with a fine balance and length.
