Tangent by Alexia Wairarapa Chenin Blanc 2019

Greytown Wairarapa | $34

TANGENT: from the Latin ‘tangere’, meaning to touch.

A lo-fi wine – vineyard derived yeasts, minimal handling and filtration, restrained use of oak, and no additions except sulphur.

Handpicked in two parcels – part one gently stomped and left on skins, part two picked later and whole bunch pressed. Aged in neutral oak for 9 months. Bone dry.

Lemon rind, white florals, river rocks, texture.

Alexia Tasting Notes

Alexia

Greytown Wairarapa

Alexia represents the strength and beauty of the matriarchy of my family, particularly my mother, the biggest influence in my life. These understated women established our family values, drove us forward, and held us together through the big, beautiful, fragile messiness of life.

I want my wines to always capture the energy, kindness and love of these inspirational women.

Within a strong matriarchy, family members know there are values that must be lived up to in order to respect what has gone before.

This is why only the best wines will ever make it into an Alexia bottle.” Jane Cooper – Winemaker
