Alexia ‘Happy Wife’ Chardonnay 2017

26-Jun-2018

‘Alexia’ is the wine brand of Jane Cooper, the highly respected and experienced winemaker, who has worked overseas and extensively in the Nelson region, but is best known for her recent role at Matahiwi in Masterton. ‘Alexia’ is a tribute to her maternal grandmother, and the brand was established in 2000. Over the years, she has made a number of wines from Wairarapa and Hawke’s Bay fruit. Jane recently left Matahiwi so that she could develop the ‘Alexia’ brand further. Here, I review the ‘Happy Wife’ Chardonnay "made to keep her wife happy”. Other wines in the works include a Blanc de Blanc sparkling, a Pinot Noir and a Sauvignon Blanc. Jane’s wine style is one of freshness and they possess the ability to keep well. Jane reports she is enjoying "being back on the tools and touching all my wines”. The wines are made at the Loopline facility. www.alexia.co.nz
