Description

The 2020 Valli Bannockburn Pinot Noir is a testament that the sum is greater than its parts – not in the form of vineyards/fruit, but in the form of winemaking… the winemaking team at Valli consisting of Jen Parr and Grant Taylor have resulted in an absolutely outstanding release. Jen brought a wealth of knowledge about the Bannockburn sub-region from her days at Terra Sancta meaning that the recent releases have been far more accessible and balanced in their youths than before she started. This Valli Bannockburn shows everything that’s great about arguably Central Otago’s most famous sub-region.

Smells

gorgeous spicy aromatics with a herbal current that is sublime on every level, intertwined with wild red berries, crushed thyme, spearmint notes, baking spice and Chinese 5 spice. The descriptives are endless.

Tastes

2020 has produced a wine of elegance and charm, with savoury, forest floor, sandalwood and toasty notes layered upon red fruits, cherry stone and notes of red and black liquorice. A silky, supple palate with fine grain tannins adding texture and structure. This is so incredibly enjoyable now but do save a few bottles to enjoy after 2029 and over the next decade when it will really start to sing.
