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 it has its own distinct personality. Instantly it’s a world apart from the others, with a completely different and more spice driven bouquet, and savoury palate reminiscent of some of the great Burgundies. 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 95-100 / 100 dazzler. Drink now or cellar for 15 years comfortably, this is classic Valli Waitaki with outstanding depth and persona that can be enjoyed at any stage of its potentially long life. A must for any serious or aspiring Pinot Noir collector!

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; a wave of red and black cherry, berry and plum fruits infused with savoury and baking spices glide seamlessly throughout the palate. The extensive finish is rich, savoury, and silky. Probably the most immediately drinkable of the Valli range this year, yet one senses it will only get better and better through 2035.
