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."

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

"Bright garnet colour with rose petals, red cherry, doris plum and baking spice on the nose. A long and highly aromatic palate with layers of delicious red fruit, rosemary, wild thyme and an earthiness that compliments the enchanting florals.This is a worldly Pinot Noir with great length, fine tannins, vibrant acidity and noble power. Its unique character sings harmoniously of its Gibbston origins, a tiny place that produces exceptional wine that is enjoyed young and will also continue to develop for many years to come."
