Valli 2015 Gibbston Pinot Noir
Winery : Valli
95-96 POINTS: RAYMOND CHAN
96 POINTS: SAM KIM
Beautifully perfumed fragrance. Typical of Gibbston, this wine is concentrated with savory red fruits, spice, and delicious earthiness. The acidity is bright and precise with perfectly judged tannin and a boundless length. This is wine to last.
Grant Taylor the winemaker aims to be invisible. A tall order one could say, given his big personality, bags of enthusiasm and pioneering pinot work in Otago. What he seeks is not to be noticed in a winemaking sense, letting each individual site that makes up the Valli Pinot Noir quartet, speak with clarity and uniqueness.
