Kalex, Alex K, Big Backyard Pinot Noir, New Zealand 2013

Rating: 17/20pts

Kalex is owned by Alex Kaufman, a Pole who escaped the Nazis and survived by living in forests for four years. Made by winemaker Theo Coles, this Pinot Noir is great value, made from Waipara fruit, and blessed with ripe cherry and spice, and a long finish. Give it a light chilling.
