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."
