The 2021 Vintage had hot and dry conditions, allowing the fruit to fully ripen, resulting in a wine that is full-flavoured, full-bodied and full of colour.

The season started with budburst occurring at the normal time, but a hot summer required exceptional irrigation management to nurture the vines to their full potential. Challenging climatic conditions were managed which resulted in good to excellent wine quality.


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.

Tasting Note

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.

Goes well with

Rich meat dishes or on the couch with dark rum and raisin chocolate.
