Valli winemaker Grant Taylor aims to be invisible. A tall order one could say, given his big personality, bags of enthusiasm and pioneering pinot work in Otago. What he seeks is not to be noticed in a winemaking sense, letting each of the individual sites that makes up the four Valli Pinots - Gibbston, Bendigo, Bannockburn and Waitaki - speak with clarity and uniqueness.
2016 Valli Bannockburn Pinot: This sub-region is considered by many to be the 'dress circle' of Central Otago. Valli Bannockburn is a complete and very serene Pinot, harmonious yet lively in the mouth, the flavours are everywhere.
2016 Valli Bendigo Pinot: Bendigo is known for producing pinots of might and power. Characteristic deep colour. Mulberry and dark cherry, smoky char and licorice. The fruit wraps around the palate, firm but fine tannins.
2016 Valli Waitaki Pinot: Waitaki is in North Otago and is where Grant Taylor grew up. Brilliant ruby colour, wonderful clarity. Aromatic and very juicy. Wow!
2016 Valli Gibbston Pinot: This is a cool sub-region of Central Otago. Deep ruby purple. The fruit is very focused and to the fore, in contrast with previously more savoury Valli Gibbstons. Wonderfully lithe.
