Valli Out Of The Shadows Pinot Noir 2012
$135.00 inc. GST
Tasting Note: “This is a very inaugural release of Valli’s “Out of the Shadows” series. Every once in a while, there are those special one or two barrels a winemaker would like to bottle separately, hide in the warehouse, pull out of the shadows and share once they are approaching maturity. In 2012, a single vineyard site along Waitaki Valleys Grants Road provided such a wine. It is now time to share and while this wine is beginning to show the complexity that can only come with age, we expect it will last and improve for another 4 or 5 years.” – Grant Taylor
