Valli's Spectacular Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

- Available Now-

 

 

Since 1998, Grant Taylor of Valli Wines has been a driving force in promoting the microclimates of Otago. Spending time in the USA, France and Australia, Grant was lured back to New Zealand and began making wine in Central Otago in 1993 when there were only four winemakers in the region. Considered one of the pioneers of 'Central', and collecting many accolades across the globe since then, Grant now leaves much of the vinification responsibilities to winemaker Jen Parr. Jen is a fantastic talent who, besides completing 28 vintages across both hemispheres in only 16 years, was recently awarded the 2019 New Zealand Winemaker of the year by Gourmet Traveler WINE New Zealand.

Together, Grant and Jen focus on crafting wines that express the character of Otago's sub-regions. Since 2014, they have also entered into a 'grape swap' with Central Otago compatriot Burn Cottage to compose a distinctive wine from their superb home vineyard.

With the 2017 Central Otago vintage being defined by quality, not quantity, these wines are densely complex and inviting. Make sure to place your order now to secure these exceptional examples of Central Otago terroir.

2017 Waitaki Vineyard Pinot Noir
Usually $79 - Special Offer $71

From the remote, limestone-rich outpost of Waitaki, this has a cool and complex nose with baking spices and lightly peppery nuances, as well as coal smoke, wild red flowers, herbs and red berries. A neat palate, offering savory notes of dark stones and smoke and crisp, delicate, plaster-like tannins.

2017 Burn Cottage Vineyard Pinot Noir
Usually $79 - Special Offer $71

The cooler growing season leading up to vintage 2017 has delivered an intensely concentrated wine with a deep garnet hue and rich fruit aromas of Black Doris plum and Romance cherry that are interwoven with savoury notes of mushroom and rosemary. The wine is highly textural and shows an earthiness that is similar to 2016 and may well be a hallmark of this Burn Cottage Vineyard. It is a fascinating journey learning about this site and subregion through very different growing seasons. We are starting to understand some significant characteristics of this place that are evident no matter what role nature plays in a given vintage. Having this birds eye view of the Burn Cottage Vineyard has resulted in Valli gaining more perspective about our own vineyards as well as helping us hone our winemaking intuition and giving us a wonderful collaborative experience. The palate has a memorable creamy texture with fine tannin and great length.This is a powerful wine that is intriguing in its youth and will continue to evolve with great interest for 10+ years.
