Winery description

"This incredibly fragrant and elegant wine is from our cooler site in Bannockburn in a warmer growing season resulting in a highly energetic wine with great flow and incredible layers of red and black fruit, baking spice and earth. The aromas are both intriguing and complex: fresh berry, lilac, baking spice and wild thyme. The palate is long and bright with cherry, raspberry, beautiful florals and cardamom. Silky fine tannins compliment the vibrant acidity, giving the wine length and memory. This wine is drinking beautifully at release and will continue to do so for at least a decade."

Valli (Bendigo) 2018 Pinot Noir

94 Points– James Suckling
“Aromas of violet flowers, spiced plums and blueberries with background, spiced wood, leading to a palate that has a very fleshy, succulent and zesty core of ripe dark cherries, fine tannin and a plush, supple finish. Drink now. Screw cap.” – James Suckling
 

93 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The fullest-bodied Valli Pinot (from the warmest subregion), the 2018 Bendigo Vineyard Pinot Noir boasts ebullient black cherry and blackberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with hints of cocoa, clove and a bit of dusty-rose character, it’s big but not lacking elegance or complexity, finishing with silky tannins and admirable length.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Considered the "Central Otago Guru" of winemaking, Grant Taylor is an exceptionally talented and meticulous winemaker. The Valli range of wines are truly superb!

"Deep garnet hue with bright fruit aromas of blackberry, cherry, and plum with toasted almond, coffee, and cedar. Fresh berry and cherry on the palate with nutmeg, mushroom, and earthy loam. A fresh and lively palate with fine tannins that build in the mouth with a long, vibrant finish. This vintage shows noteworthy freshness and refinement for Bendigo in a warm growing season. Bold and bright, this wine is intricately layered with a sturdy structure and incredible detail. Lively and inviting in its youth, this wine will also go the distance and is worthy of cellaring for 10+ years."

Valli (Waitaki) 2015 Late Harvest Riesling

95 Points – Bob Campbell
5 Stars – Michael Cooper  

“Floral, spice, rose, orange blossom and apricot aromas. Rich, round and sweet on the palate with complex, ripe citrus flavours. Perfectly balanced acidity reigns in the residual sugar. The mid-harvest rains in the Waitaki brought with them a classic botrytis infection, most notably and desirably in the Riesling. As they say, ‘every cloud has it’s silver lining’: this wine is it.” - Grant Taylor

Considered the "Central Otago Guru" of winemaking, Grant Taylor is an exceptionally talented and meticulous winemaker. The Valli range of wines are truly superb!

"Light garnet hue with sweet and savoury aromas of fresh lilac, dried plum, wild strawberry, cumin and manuka-smoked bacon. The charming florals, intriguing spice and red/dried fruit flavours layer wonderfully with the limey acidity that drives the wine and the silky fine tannins that create a beautiful round and mouth-filling texture.Forever ethereal, Waitaki Pinot is unique: bridging the energy of new world pinot noir with the form and shape of classic old world pinot noir. An intriguing wine that is lithe and fragrant in its youth with savoury notes that will continue to unfold with age."

Valli 2015 Waitaki Chardonnay

20 Points Five stars -  Raymond Chan 
 
"Pale straw colour, the nose was redolent of subtle citrus fruit with subtle mineral, creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak aromas, expressed with freshness and finesse. Beautifully juxtaposing finesse with underlying power, this appeared delicate, then revealed layer upon layer of citrus and stonefruits, mealy nuances, integrated spicy and nutty oak, with creamy barrel-ferment textures alongside fine, bracing acidity. This could have been superb Grand Cru Chablis or a very fine Corton-Charlemagne if it wasn’t for the slightly ‘sweet’ New World’ fruitiness. A treat to taste (and drink)." - March 2017

Winery description
"Aromas of lemon zest, baked biscuits, flint and a hint of nutmeg reminiscent of old world Chardonnay. On the palate there is a beautiful balance of texture from the lees stirring and length from the wonderful limestone-centric soils of the Waitaki. Concentrated yet refined; full of character yet showing youthful shyness; This Chardonnay highlights the potential in Waitaki for producing world class wines. Made in tiny quantities this wine is a treasure to enjoy now and also worthy of burying away in the treasure chest for a handsome reward in years to come."
