Valli Pinot Noir Gibbston Valley 2011 Central Otago 13.5%
N: A generous, fruit-centred bouquet with raspberry cordial, strawberry and cherry fruit suggestions: deceptively simple with a heart of pinosity beating close by.
P: One out of the bag here: a wine with a lovely concentration of fruit flavours, yet depth and complexity from smart use of oak and tannins. Dry, with medium+ length and medium+ complexity. There is a fine sweet spot to this wine that many could miss. Medium+ length and a finish that ends the wine as it begins – generous, fruit centred. Lovely.
