Alexander Vineyard ‘Dusty Road’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

Michael Finucane and Roz Walker have been making excellent wine from their 5 ha vineyard on Hinakura Road, in Martinborough for over 15 years. The commissioning of their new winery and cellar door complex on-site for the 2014 vintage has seen a further step up in quality. I have reviewed both the flagship ‘Alexander’ and second ‘Dusty Road’ releases from that year onwards at 5-stars. For the 2016 vintage, Michael and Roz have begun experimenting with greater inputs of indigenous yeast fermentation, whole bunches and new oak. The 2016 vintage in the Wairarapa was the fourth excellent one in a row. Here, I review the new release 2016 ‘Dusty Road’ Pinot Noir which may be a sign of where Alexander Vineyard is heading.
