Kalex Wines

Kalex Wines Alex Kaufman SV Riesling Pisa Terrace 2015
Ripe fruited bouquet with sweet apple and lemon aromas then a floral, candied citrus suggestion. A dry wine on the palate with distinctive flavours of preserved lemon, apple, honey suckle and rose; plenty of acidity bites into the palate, some minerality and moderate to lengthy finish. Well made overall
88 Points

Kalex Wines Alex Kaufman SV Bendigo Terrace 2015
Ripe tree and stone fruits bouquet with yellow apple, apricot and quince then lemon and a stone mineral note. Dry, firm texture, tense and poised for further ageing; flavours reflect the bouquet, a delicate note of residual sugar adds length and finish, overall a nice wine. Drink now and through 2024.

Kalex Wines Alex Kaufman Pinot Gris 2016 Central Otago
Varietal and expressive bouquet of ripe pear and white fleshed stone fruits - nectarine especially; a fleshy texture suggestions and delicate floral note adds some depth and interest. A drier style Gris on the palate with decent texture from the acidity and some light lees work; a touch of spice and fleshy fruit flavours add up to a very drinkable and noteworthy example. Balanced and well made.

Kalex Wines Alex Kaufman Pinot Noir 2014 Central Otago
A bouquet that shows off aromas of savory and spice then dark cherry and raspberry fruits, a layer of gently spiced oak and mild toasty wood add depth as well as complexity. On the palate - dry, youthful, firm textures from the tannins and flavours that reflect the  nose - a savory, dark berry fruit package; tannins have a finesse and youthful grip adding tension and cellar worthy attributes. A lengthy and dry finish. Drink now if decanted and through 2024.  
90 Points
