About the Wine
Aromas of violets and wild thyme mingled with blackberry, dark cherry and a savoury scent of leather.
The concentrated core of dark red fruit is lifted by ripe acidity and underscored by long and beautifully woven tannins. A harmonious Pinot Noir that is intriguing now but will also age gracefully.
About Valli Vineyards
Valli is the personal vocation of pioneering winemaker Grant Taylor. Grant’s name is synonymous with Otago Pinot Noir. He has been crafting wines there since 1993 when there were only 20 ha planted – today there are over 2000.
Grant founded VALLI in 1998 with the intention to produce single vineyard Pinot Noirs highlighting the different characteristics of Otago’s sub regions. More than 20 years later, VALLI is doing just that, producing single-vineyard pinot noirs from Gibbston, Bannockburn, and Bendigo in Central Otago and the Waitaki Valley in North Otago.
