Tangent by Alexia Wairarapa Gamay 2019

Greytown Wairarapa | $39

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.

From 12-year-old bush vines pulled up onto wires for the first time for the 2019 vintage. The wine that brought us to our knees. Broken after days on end of picks, hauling and shovelling – two of us crawled along the rows on hands and knees to pick the grapes for this special little wine – only 250 bottles made!

Handpicked, 100% whole bunch, part carbonic fermentation, aged in neutral oak for 9 months.

Raspberry, char, spice, elusive.Tangent by Alexia 2019 Wairarapa Gamay

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
