Pear, lime zest, almond, and mandarin on the nose accentuated by an intense mineral character. A very aromatic Pinot Gris with a distinctive creamy texture from a notably warmer growing season. The palate exudes delicious fruit flavours including many types of pear, white peach and citrus. We see riper citrus appearing in this vintage with a wonderful hint of orange. A richly textured mid palate is complimented by a vibrant vein of acidity that gives the wine great length. Our Pinot Gris is great for food pairing but also delicious on its own and very ageworthy.

"Youthfully charming and elegantly fragrant, the wine shows nectarine, fresh pear, orange peel and floral aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that’s fleshy and lingering. It’s wonderfully composed with lovely vibrant fruit intensity together with fine texture and bright acidity, finishing impressively long and delightfully dry. At its best: now to 2024."

Producers notes

VALLI is the personal vocation of pioneering winemaker Grant Taylor. Grant’s name is synonymous with Otago Pinot Noir. He has been crafting wines there since 1993 when there were only 20 ha planted – today there are over 2000. Grant founded VALLI in 1998 with the intention to produce single vineyard Pinot Noirs highlighting the different characteristics of Otago’s sub regions. More than 20 years later, VALLI is doing just that, producing single-vineyard pinot noirs from Gibbston, Bannockburn, and Bendigo in Central Otago and the Waitaki Valley in North Otago, as well as a dry Pinot Gris from Gibbston and a Riesling from Waitaki. In 2015, established Otago winemaker Jen Parr joined Grant in the winery where the two aim to create wines with honesty, integrity, and most of all, a sense of place. When you drink a Valli wine, you are enjoying more than just a wine: you are experiencing a place.
