Description

There is often an argument about whether the Waitaki Valley is closer to Canterbury or Otago, and really it's a law unto itself, as one sniff of this Valli Waitaki Pinot Noir will show you. Instantly it's a world apart from the others, with a completely different and more spice driven bouquet, reminiscent of some of the great Burgundies. A majestic and elegantly perfumed wine, this is already delicious but will cellar for 10 years with ease.

Smells

Complex and savoury bouquet showing cinnamon and five spice, wild thyme, with generous red and black fruit. Exceptional.

Tastes

Amazingly elegant and refined with a subtle power, this is the most immediately drinkable of the Valli range this year, yet one senses it will only get better and better. Enjoy now to 2028.
