Valli Waitaki Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Valli Waitaki Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

VALLI is the personal vocation of pioneering winemaker Grant Taylor. Grant’s name is synonymous with Otago Pinot Noir. He has been crafting wines there since 1993 when there were only 20 ha planted – today there are over 2000. Grant founded VALLI in 1998 with the intention to produce single vineyard Pinot Noirs highlighting the different characteristics of Otago’s sub regions.

The 2019 growing season was cool in nature, particularly at flowering, resulting in a small fruit set and a "normal" Waitaki harvest in late April/early May. The limestone-rich soils influence both the shape and the flow of this wine with its mouth-filling texture underlined by candid acidity. The nose has both tropical and citrus aromas with hints of zest and vanilla. The intense palate builds in the mouth with a silky/citrus character that is wonderfully salivating. Made in tiny quantities, this young wine is immediately enjoyable and will continue to reward for many years.
