About This Wine

Grant Taylor is renowned as one of the pioneering winemakers of the Central Otago region. Taylor has been making wine here since 1993 when there were just 20 hectares of vines planted in the area. Over the years he has helped many of New Zealand’s top wineries create their first vintages including Felton Road, Mt Difficulty, Bald Hills and Carrick. Taylor has a special affinity for Pinot Noir which thrives in Central Otago, and his wines have won Best Pinot Noir Trophy at the International Wine Competition three times.

He founded his Valli Vineyard in 1998, taking the name from his great-great-grandfather Giuseppe Valli who came from an Italian winemaking family. Here Taylor’s philosophy is centred around crafting exceptional single vineyard wines which express the true beauty of the Pinot Noir grape.

The Waitaki vineyard is planted on limestone soils with plenty of maritime influence from the nearby coast. This helps to create an especially elegant and vibrant style of Pinot Noir with a light body, fine tannins and delicate raspberry, cherry and strawberry notes. The balance and ample freshness in this wine make it a great match for food including charcuterie, roasted duck and a variety of game dishes like wood pigeon, pheasant or partridge.

Central Otago Wines

Central Otago is a unique wine region for New Zealand as it does not grow any of the country's famous Sauvignon Blanc but also unique globally for being the most southerly commercial wine region in the world. The region is famous for its fruity and full-bodied Pinot Noir with about ¾ of all vineyards in the region growing this grape variety. One of our favourite Pinot Noir regions here at World Wine.

Central Otago is the only region in New Zealand with a truly continental climate, with large daily and seasonal temperature extremes. At 300m in elevation, vineyards are protected from the cold ocean winds by high mountains reaching 3700m. The soils are also different to the rest of the country, with heavy deposits of rough-edged mica and other metamorphic schists in silt loams.

Historically, the subregion of Bannockburn has seen the most success. However, the region has seen significant growth in recent years and other sub regions are also flourishing.
