Grape: Pinot Noir
Vineyard: Valli
Origin: Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand
Vintage: 2020
ABV%: 14%
Colour: Medium ruby red with garnet hue
Aromas: A lifted fragrance mingling fresh florals, dried herb, red & blue fruit, liquorice, earthy loam and new leather
Flavours: The flavours mirror the aromas with bright fruit, a savoury edge and delicious floral notes. Immediately fresh, the silky textured palate builds in the mouth and crescendos with a memorable, lingering finish. Vibrant at release, this wine is apt for cellaring and will continue to evolve for 15+/-years


The location of Valli’s Bannockburn Vineyard is only 20km from Gibbston in the Cromwell basin but the difference in climate is responsible for creating markedly different wines. The Bannockburn wines reflect this warmer area by displaying darker fruits, by being denser, more powerful and with longevity based more on their tannin structure, as opposed to Gibbston wines which are based more on their acidity. The soils are also windblown loess over gravelly schist but with sandier, deeper topsoil, which allows for free draining. Climate, rather than soil, attributes to the main difference in the wines.
