An image of a bottle of Valli Gibbston Valley Pinot Noir

Valli Gibbston Pinot Noir

  • Pinot Noir
  • New Zealand, 750ml

“Bright garnet hue with aromas of plum, mulled spices, rosemary, peppercorn, and graphite. The intense perfume flows onto the palate with more baking spices, dried florals, cedar, and dark red fruit. This vintage of Gibbston Pinot Noir is harmonious and inviting with a suppleness that lends great drinkability at a young age. The extremely small harvest from this site makes the wine a real treasure! Drink now until 2030.”Jen Parr

Grant Taylor’s name is synonymous with Otago Pinot Noir. As owner and winemaker, Grant has been crafting wines there since 1993 when the region was in its infancy with only 20 ha planted, (today there are over 1700). Grant’s accomplishments are well known in the wine world, he is possibly New Zealand’s most awarded Pinot Noir producer, credited with winning the Best Pinot Noir Trophy at a major International Wine Competition in London an unprecedented four times – a feat achieved by no other winemaker in the world. Born in Oregon, Jen Parr is a winemaker and wine judge who joined the Valli team in 2015, having had extensive international experience of over 30 vintages worldwide and 17 vintages in New Zealand.

Established in 1998, the aim of Valli is to produce single vineyard wines with an emphasis on expressing the site with clarity and purity. Based around the close-planted estate vineyard in Gibbston, Valli also produces Single-Vineyard Pinot Noirs from Bannockburn, Bendigo and the Waitaki Valley, a dry Pinot Gris from Gibbston, and a Riesling from Waitaki. With holistic attention to detail in both the vineyard and winery, these wines both reflect and translate the sites they evolve from.

All four Pinot Noirs and Old vine Riesling are multi award winners every vintage and also highly sought after by our customers with Valli wine demand always exceeding our supply.

"Unique and supremely high quality expressions of Otago regionality. The path to understanding and recognising regionality and terroir has not been expressed with great success in New Zealand, but Grant Taylor’s wines must be considered among the best at doing so." Raymond Chan on Valli, his 2016 Winery of the Year.

"Jen Parr couldn’t be more deserving of this award – especially as she is the only person to have been nominated as a finalist two years in a row. Her experience and attention to detail serve her well when creating wines of great quality and sense of place that are bound to delight any discerning wine lover." Judy Sarris, editor of Gourmet Traveller WINE, on Jen Parr's Winemaker of the Year 2020 win.
