Valli 2017 Gibbston Pinot Noir
Winery : Valli
95 POINTS: BOB CAMPBELL
Dense, concentrated wine with plum, cherry, berry, a few crushed herbs and some spice and anise character. A very good example of the slightly cooler Gibbston style. Lovely wine in a complex and sophisticated style - Bob Campbell
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.
