Alexander Martinborough 2016 ‘Raumati’ Rosé and 2015 Merlot

06-Oct-2016
Alexander Vineyard is the Martinborough wine operation of Michael Finucane and Roz Walker who have been sourcing fruit from their 5 ha vineyard on Hinakura Road for over 15 years. The vineyard is close-planted with 15,000 Pinot Noir vines, and the recent releases of the ‘Alexander’ and second label ‘Dusty Road’ Pinot Noir wines have been excellent (click here to see my reviews of the 2015 vintage releases). Michael and Roz also make a rosé from the Pinot Noir, and a small amount of Merlot, the vineyard with 750 Merlot vines planted on clay soils which yields around 50 cases annually. Here, I review the new release 2016 ‘Raumati’ Rosé and 2015 Merlot. Contact Michael Finucane on Tel: 06 306-8171 or Email: [email protected]
