Valli 2015 Bannockburn Pinot Noir
Winery : Valli
93-96 POINTS: RAYMOND CHAN
96 POINTS: SAM KIM
Depth and structure. This is a wonderfully powerful wine, presenting some intense dark fruits, and violet on the nose. The palate is round and structured offering beautiful ripeness and approach-ability. A wine to drink now and over the next 10 years.
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.
