Valli, Waitaki Vineyard Pinot Noir, North Otago - 2019

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

Light garnet hue with fruit aromas of wild strawberry, sweet cherry, and plum married with sage, wild thyme and a touch o f cedar. The vibrant fruit, savoury notes and intriguing spice, layer wonder fully with the silky fine tannins and creamy texture highlighted by a fresh acidity that gives the wine tremendous energy. The cooler growing season saw a late April /early May harvest resulting in a beautifully fragrant wine with delicate fine tannins and exciting aromatics that are a true re flection o f the Waitaki. A wine that is a touch exotic, lithe and exceptionally enjoyable upon release and will bene fit from up to 8 years in the cellar. A real gem for those who love Waitaki Pinots!

 

"The highly fragrant 2019 vintage was hand-harvested, matured in French oak barriques (25 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright ruby, it is a stylish, youthful red, with good density of vibrant cherry, spice and herb flavours, a hint of tamarillo, fresh acidity, and supple tannins. A vigorous, complex red, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+."
