Established in 1989, Alexander Vineyard is located in the heart of the famed Martinborough Terrace, on the free-draining gravels of the old river terraces created by the Ruamahanga River in the internationally renowned wine village of Martinborough.
The vineyard extends to five hectares, planted mainly with Pinot Noir and some Merlot, in high-density rows with low trellising to maximise sunlight interception to the vines. This, together with the gravel soils and the dominant north-westerly winds, ensures low-yielding vines with intensely flavoured fruit.
Alexander Wine’s philosophy in the winery is one of guidance rather than manipulation of the winemaking process. This includes gentle basket pressing of fruit, followed by careful barrel selection and blending, to produce wines of depth, elegance and complexity suitable for cellaring.
Raumati, the Mãori name for summer, captures the true spirit of the handcrafted Pinot Noir Rosé from the Alexander Vineyard on the Martinborough Terrace. An inviting bouquet of raspberry, recurrent and summer fruits fills the glass leading to a refreshing, crisp classic Rosé finish.Perfect served as an aperitif or just to enjoy on that long, warm summers day.
Handpicked fruit from low yielding vines has produced an elegant, deeply scented wine with sweet, ripe cherry and plum flavours with a round and well balanced finish, with savoury and roasted oak characters. Aged in French oak barriques, half new, this handcrafted single vineyard wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to seven years.
