Description

Of all the stunning Pinot Noirs that Grant Taylor makes under Valli, Gibbston is both the closest to his heart and often the finest; but nothing separates the quality of all 4 releases in 2021 vintage, its their regional terroir driven flavour and structure differences that stand them apart. Though Gibbston is the coolest of the Central Otago sub-regions, Grant’s site is the best 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. The winemaking prowess at Valli consisting of Jen Parr (NZ Winemaker of the Year) and Grant Taylor (3 times World Champion Pinot Noir maker in London) resulted in this amazing 97-98 / 100 dazzler. Drink now or cellar for 15 years comfortably, this is a classic Valli Gibbston that will be outstanding at any age. A must for any serious or aspiring Pinot Noir collector!

Smells

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

Tastes

Very concentrated with black fruits, yet light on its feet, with wild cherry introducing an array of delicate florals and structural tannins. An amalgamation of subtle power and intrigue, with layers of flavour. World Class Central Otago Pinot Noir with 15+ years of age ability.
