We have sold all the vintages since 2014, and now the 2019 is being cleared as well with this being the last pallet available. And given the excellent vintage, 2019 is yet another stunning wine for the price. It is rich-fruited but also and savoury, with winemaker Theo Coles making a partial use of whole bunch to impart an exotic raw spice character. Complex and complete, it is a "buy-now" at this crazy discount. Sad news for Kalex, great news for us! Get in before it's gone!

Pinot Noir

Its Origins

The bearer of a remarkable story, Alex Kaufman was a Polish holocaust survivor who arrived in America with ‘nothing but a quarter in his shoe’ and rose from laboratory cleaner to Pharmaceutical boss. Having fallen in love with the beautiful climes of Central Otago, the elderly but energetic Kaufman established Kalex wines, the stewardship of which is now taken by his daughter Irene Kaufman. With genuine backing to focus on quality fruit and winemaking - with Theo Coles at the winemaking helm - Kalex wines pander not at all to the market but instead make superbly classy and distinctive wines, reflective of classic European taste but capturing in a very refined form that clean, bright fruit and herbal aspect engendered by Central Otago’s harsh alpine conditions.

What The Critics Say

95/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2018 vintage)

"Wonderfully fruited and immensely complex, the wine shows sweet plum, dark cherry, thyme, anise and roasted nut characters on the nose. It's beautifully ripe and richly textured on the palate, offering terrific fruit purity and power, while remaining graceful and persistent. $40.00. www.kalexwines.com. March 2020." Drink 2020 - 2026
