2016 Valli Bannockburn Pinot Noir

Gorgeous Single Vineyard wine from the Valli Lama himself, Grant Taylor

FWDC 96/100

Description

As much of a legend as Grant Taylor is, this Bannockburn Pinot is the one wine in his range that has improved significantly under his new winemaking protegee Jen Parr. Jen brought with her a wealth of knowledge about the Bannockburn sub-region from her days at Terra Sancta/Olssens, and now the last two vintages have been far more accessible and balanced in their youths than before she started. No longer 'tannic-burn' this Valli Bannockburn shows everything that's great about arguably Central Otago's most famous sub-region.

Smells

Lovely meaty, dark nose showing all the classic hallmarks of the region: dark cherries, spice and liquorice.

Tastes

Opulent and generous style of Pinot, with a silky, supple palate and a kiss of toasty French Oak, this is so incredibly enjoyable now, but do save a few bottles to enjoy after 2021 and over the next decade, when it will really start to sing.
