Alexandra Davishon Pinot Noir
Dark purple with purple hues. Dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit on the nose, with aromas of dried herbs, cloves and spicy oak. Sweet red and dark fruit on the palate, with some liquorice and spice. A medium bodied wine, showing complexity and good concentration, with supple, fine grained tannin and a long mineral finish.
The Davishon Vineyard is situated on the terrace above the Clutha River between Alexandra and Clyde in Central Otago. Grapes have been growing here for 130 years. Jean Desire Ferauds produced the first grapes in Central Otago here in the 1860’s. He could see that the hot summer days and relatively cool nights would produce world class wines. Soils are free draining river gravels and the summer/autumn rainfall is very low. The philosophy of viticulturist and winemaker is low volume/high quality “to produce the best Pinot Noir possible!”
The label shows a gold stylised Central Otago schist rock (made famous in scenes from the Lord of Rings) depicting the dry harsh environments and the history of gold in the valleys and mountains of the region.
