2016 Valli Gibbston Pinot Noir

The only winemaker to craft the World's Best Pinot. 4 times!

Description

Of all the stunning Pinot Noirs that Grant Taylor makes under Valli, Gibbston is both the closest to his heart and the finest quality. Though it is the coolest of the Central Otago sub-regions, Grant's site is the finest in the valley, and his wines always show perfect ripeness and ample generosity. This latest vintage is a tour de force, a journey on the bouquet through all the floral, fruit and earthy qualities of great Pinot, yet it is still a baby. Drink now or cellar 15 years, this is a classic Valli Gibbston that will be outstanding at any age.

Smells

Haunting aromas of red and black cherries, wild herbs, French oak and leather, with subtle gamey meats.

Tastes

Beautifully concentrated yet light on its feet, with red fruit cherry tang introducing an array of delicate florals and structural tannins. Always released young since it sells out so early, this is one of the great Otago Pinots and a must for any collector. Drink now to 2031.
