Valli, Bannockburn Vineyard Pinot Noir, Central Otago - 2016

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

An incredibly fragrant and elegant wine from a cooler site in Bannockburn with a perfect balance of power and poise. Intriguing aromas of wild flowers, fresh berries, dried herb, baking spice and vanilla on the nose. The energetic palate is long and fresh with red cherry, raspberry and savoury undertones. Silky fine tannins with a creamy underlay compliment the vibrant acidity that gives the wine length and memory. This wine is drinking beautifully at release and will continue to do so for at least a decade.

 

"Otago veteran Grant Taylor's single vineyard wines are an excellent deep dive into Otago's varied terroirs. This vintage of Bannockburn is particularly pretty and approachable, and less rich than the Gibbston. Heady notes of raspberry, vanilla, clove and white pepper envelop the senses. The bright, tart berries continue on the palate where the tightly wound, sinewy tannins are balanced by crunchy acidity. Drink now–2028."
