VALLI WAITAKI RIESLING CENTRAL OTAGO 18
Valli Riesling is inspired by the great whites of the Mosel Valley in Germany. Winemaker Grant Taylor describes this vintage as having flavours of freshly squeezed lime juice, Granny Smith apple with hints of chalk and jasmine flower.
"The prominent acidity is beautifully balanced with bright citrus and a round mid palate with stoney freshness and salinity that gives the wine great length. Finely detailed and energetic, this wine is delicious on its own but will also pair wonderfully with fresh fish, seafood, summer salads, and light-medium spiced Indian or Thai cuisine. A fragrant and earthy wine, it will continue to develop for 10 + years showing more richness and secondary characteristics." Grant Taylor.
Valli Wines was founded by Central Otago winemaker Grant Taylor in 1998 and has since become one of the most collectible Pinot Noir brands in New Zealand with four distinctly different Pinot Noirs made every year from four key sub regions in Central Otago. Grant is the only winemaker producing a consistently diverse range of wines every vintage with each wine made the same way so that the wines each express the climate and soil variations in the areas from which they come from.
