Alejandro Tempranillo 2018 | 93 POINTS

"It is immediately appealing on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blueberry compote, violet, thyme and toasted nut characters, leading to a succulent palate that is fleshy and rounded. The wine is up front and flavoursome with excellent fruit weight and intensity."

Son of a Bull Sauvignon Blanc 2018 | 90 POINTS

Son of a Bull Gewurztraminer 2018 | 92 POINTS

"Alex Russell wines have produced a range of wines from across the country that are well made and well priced, with this Gewurztraminer the pick of the bunch. An attractive nose of musk and lychee with some candied pineapple notes and pickled ginger. Bone-dry with citrus at its core; green apple builds with spice and tropical notes before the finish sees a return of the ginger and a chalkiness of citrus acidity that provides very good length."
