Valli Waitaki Pinot Noir-Wine-Wineseeker
$67.20

Valli Waitaki Pinot Noir

Light garnet hue with fruit aromas o f wild strawberry, sweet cherry, and plum married with sage, wild thyme and a touch o f cedar. The vibrant fruit, savoury notes and intriguing spice, layer wonder fully with the silky fine tannins and creamy texture highlighted by a fresh acidity that gives the wine tremendous energy. The cooler growing season saw a late April /early May harvest resulting in a beauti fully fragrant wine with delicate fine tannins and exciting aromatics that are a true re flection of the Waitaki. A wine that is a touch exotic, lithe and exceptionally enjoyable upon release and will bene fit from up to 8 years in the cellar. A real gem for those who love Waitaki Pinots !

"Even, light garnet-red colour, a little paler on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with a fine, tightly bound core with good depth and intensity of dark-red cherry and berry fruit melded with fresh and dark herbs, a little floral lift and some whole bunch stalk nuances. This is slender but detailed. Medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated heart with intense and penetrating flavours of dark-red berry fruit melded with fresh and dark herbs. Whole bunch stalk notes and lifted florals add interest. The palate forms an elegant core and is enlivened by fresh acidity, and supported by fine-grained tannin extraction. This has good energy and linearity and carries to a long, sustained finish. This is an elegant, intense and penetrating Pinot Noir with flavours of dark cherries and berries with fresh and dark herbs on a lively palate wine fine tannins and excellent linearity. Match with tuna and salmon, poultry and pork over the next 6+ years. Clones 5, 115, Abel and 777, from the company’s ‘Grants Road’ and the ‘River T’ vineyards, vines planted 2001, fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 20 days on skins and aged 11 months in 27% new oak. 5,800 bottles produced. 18.5-/20 Sep 2018" Raymond Chan
