Under the expert eye of the award-winning winemaker, Alex Russell, Alex Russell Wines has raised the bar of winemaking in South Australia’s Riverland region for the last six years. With a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry, both locally and internationally, Alex’s motivation to create the best possible product has resulted in a diverse range of premium alternative wines. The soil is unique to the Murray River system and is known technically as calcareous earth, ranging from brown to red-brown loamy sand, sandy loam or loam. The surface is neutral to moderately alkaline with increasing alkalinity at depth as textures become more clayey and calcareous. Overall, the soil supports the vigorous growth and high grape yields. Alejandro is a premium offering of alternate varietals wines inspired by the sun-beaten soils of Southern Spain. The varieties grown for the Alejandro label, such as Saperavi, adapt exceptionally well to the climate of the Murray Darling wine-growing region, which mirrors that of their ancestral homes. Dark and fruit-driven, Alejandro Premium Australian Wines are the perfect companions for all things tapas. 6 months maturation in barrel using both French and American oak. Mulberry, dark fruits, fennel and spice combined to produce a complex aromatic wine that resembles a rich, dark fruit cake. Rich, tannic, full bodied with lots of French and American oak to compliment the fruits and spices.
