Valli Vineyard Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2022

FIVE STARS | Michael Cooper

This is classic Valli Pinot -  vinted from a low cropping Bannockburn site that shows vibrant sub-regional red fruits and a distinct fresh mineral line. This wine has been built for the long haul and will evolve beautifully over the 10 to 15 years. A masterclass in modern Central Otago winemaking - elegant, complex and restrained. Bravo.

Tasting Notes

Bob Campbell MW writes "Typical juicy Bannockburn style with an extraordinary lengthy finish that elevates the wine above its peers. A hint of floral aromas with cassis, dark-fleshed plum, blackberry and a subtle seasoning of spicy oak. Delicious wine that can be appreciated now."

David Walker Bell, Wine Folio writes "A deep garnet/burgundy in the glass. A splendidly aromatic nose – this is what great Pinot does – I find myself unable to move on from the exuberant perfume. Here it is profound, with a little of the barrel influencing the scent, alongside dry herbs, rose petal, raspberry and cherry. Dry and concentrated in the palate – not weighty, but it unfurls itself with a coiled power. A wine full of ying and yang. A primary and energetic acidity sits well alongside the lithe tannin, polished and with a little rasp – forming a spine. Finally, a swoop of creamy and silken texture, before a finish with great persistence."

Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews writes "Bright, ruby-red with good transparency, slightly lighter on the rim. It has a broody, alluring bouquet penetrating with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, plum, wild thyme, sage mushroom and a hint of game. Medium-bodied, lightly savoury aromas of black cherry and blackberry melded with cinnamon, nutmeg, wild thyme, sage, brown oyster mushroom and a subtle hint of game. Filigree tannin lightly frames the ripe fruit, herbs, and savoury elements, unveiling spice and integrating enlivening acidity to an enticing, lengthy finish. A James Bond of Pinot Noir, smooth and polished."
