VALLI

The Valli estate is a relatively new, boutique winery in NZ which was established in 1998 by Otago’s pioneering winemaker, Grant Taylor. Grant has been making wines in Otago since 1993 when there were only 20 hectares under vine.

The estate is named after his Great-Great Grandfather Giuseppe Valli, who emigrated to New Zealand from an Italian winemaking background. Grant has blazed a trail in establishing Otago subregions, which has...

Image of wine Bendigo Pinot Noir
BUY
TASTING NOTES

The grapes for the Bendigo Pinot are picked from vines planted on the Chinaman’s Terrace, which has a higher elevation and cooler temperatures than the rest of this sub-region. Blackberries and spice on the nose, leading to a broad and brooding palate with more dark fruits, plums and spice. Dense, powerful and with a lingering finish.

placed Valli Vineyards firmly on the world wine map. Their premium, limited production of four single vineyard Pinots and a Riesling have already collected some prestigious awards in a very short space of time, including winning the IWC Best Pinot Trophy twice.

Gibbston Pinot is the Estate’s flagship wine; the Gibbston vineyard is situated in central Otago, which is the coolest of the subregions and has the slowest ripening season. The warmer-climate Bannockburn vineyard is 20km from Gibbston in the Cromwell basin. The newest vineyard acquisition is Bendigo, also in Central Otago, which was planted in 2006. Grant was involved in the original Bendigo plantings across five different sites and the Valli grapes are sourced from his favourite location of the higher elevated Chinaman’s Terrace, offering cooler temperatures in this warmer region. The cooler Northern Otago Waitaki vineyard with limestone soil was planted in 2001 with early ripening Dijon and Pommard clones. The high-grade blue slate soil in Alexandra vineyard in central Otago nurtures the 31 year old Riesling vines, which also benefit from the greatest diurnal temperature range of all of New Zealand’s winegrowing regions.
